Age: around 12 – 24 months old
Time: 1 minute to set up, around 5 for the activity
Equipment: your child’s favourite teddy, dolly or other toy with arms and legs
Have you noticed that your child seems to have a favourite song or type of music he likes to dance to? How do you think he woukd react if his toys started “dancing” to it as well?
Grab a doll or soft toy, then either sing or put on some of your child’s favourite music and make his toys dance along – they might leap, spin around or do a Highland jig!
Your child might find this very funny and may start to join in with his own toy.
It can be a great game to use as a quick distraction for a toddler who might be getting a bit grumpy or tired.
Hope you and your family enjoy it 🙂
