The Secret of Play

My son is almost 16 months old and for the most part all we do is PLAY! Yes, that's how little ones learn best. I just picked this book up from the library about play. Here are some tips especially for one year olds:

-Stack blocks or plastic cups
-Talk with dolls, stuffed animals and puppets (I need to do more of this!)
-Fill containers, then empty out
-Imitate grown up behavior
-Sort toys by shape
-Identify "boy" or "girl" toys
-Walk while pulling a toy

Have fun!
