Tent Time

Toddler Playtime

Make a tent with your child! Cover two sturdy chairs with a blanket or towel and invite them to come inside. Make it a special place for games like playing “Peekaboo” or bringing special tent toys inside to play with. Name the special place together!

See what your child is learning

A tent creates a new, almost magical space in a familiar place. As your child goes in and out, they have a chance to change their view of the world, adjust their behavior and play accordingly—in other words, to be a flexible thinker.
