Snacktime Challenge

Toddler Snacktime

Drop a small snack inside an empty clear plastic bottle. Encourage your child to get the piece out of the bottle. Do they shake the bottle or put their fingers inside? Can they try in different ways. If they’re struggling ask, “What would happen if you turned it upside down”

See what your child is learning

You’re helping to build your child’s critical thinking and problem-solving skills when you encourage them to test out ideas and come up with answers on their own. By talking with them about what they’re doing, you help them to understand the world.
