A 2-year-old child is developing his or her sensory skills, motor skills and language skills. Fun activities like art projects and games that engage and develop these skills are great for this age.
Sensory skills can be engaged through play with various textures and temperatures. Consider letting the child explore with molding clay, sand, fingerpaint or even a bowl of squishy colorful gelatin. Fine motor skills can be developed through activities like creative art projects, sorting objects by shape or color and building with interlocking blocks. Help little ones develop and practice language skills by playing games that involve asking questions or describing items like I Spy.
