3 Fun Educational Activities For 2 Year Olds

This should not come as a surprise when he is suddenly bored of one or two of his favorite activities - it just means that he needs to move to activities that are now more appropriate for his age and will make him understand his actions, feelings and behavior more.


Simon says

Simon Says is a simple but classic game enjoyed by children of all ages. In young children, playing a game like this will help improve his ability to follow directions and improve his motor skills and receptive language.

Start by being the leader, saying Simon Sais followed a simple direction such as "touching your belly" or "raise your hand." After a while, make directions more complex, such as "touch your right ear" or "jump 3 times."

You can make the game a little more physical to keep your child active by asking them to hunt, hide, or go somewhere (to the refrigerator, next to their bed, or under the window). Do not forget to give him his role or that he is a leader!

Body tracking

All you need is a large piece of paper (big enough so that your child can put it lying down) and two crayons and you'll have fun activity for the afternoon. Basically, your child should lie on the paper while tracking his body. Once your child's silhouette appears, you can go ahead and fill the face - drawing eyes, ears, mouth, nose, etc.

Having him lie down without moving while you follow him helps him develop his sense of self and self-control. Drawing parts of the body and showing where the parts are going enhances its ability to identify body parts.

If your child is hesitant to lie down, don't force him - start by following his hand or foot!

Hide and seek game

This is an activity that will help improve your child's listening and solve problems, memory and social skills. Choose at least 3 of his favorite games, then hide them in different places in his room. Start in easy places like under a pillow or behind a chair.

Ask him to find the toys and give clues and say "warmer" or "cooler" as a guide. In the end, you can choose places to hide harder or move to a larger room.

It's time for your toddler to change their activities - try these fun educational activities for 2 year olds.
