Full Answer

BabyCenter categorizes activities for toddlers based on age. For younger toddlers, more imitative play and parallel play activities are suitable. An example of such a game is "Mirror Me," in which parents make faces and gestures and have children imitate the gestures back. Parents clap to praise the imitation. Older toddlers have more language skills, so they may be able to do more singing. An activity for an older toddler is to sing "If You're Happy and You Know It."

Additionally, BabyCenter states that making and playing with Play-Doh is an appropriate activity for older toddlers of approximately 22 months. By this age, a toddler may want an adult to be even more involved in his play as compared to when he was between 12 and 18 months. Therefore, when playing with Play-Doh, parents should communicate with their child about what the child would like to do with the Play-Doh and work on the project as a team.
