Toddlers love to play 'Let's Pretend' starting around 1-1/2 years old. And it's a good way for you to interact with your child. One popular game of 'Let's Pretend' is sharing a meal. And it helps to teach your child how to hand things to others. Have some toy cups, plates, cutlery, and plastic food available, and let your child set the table. Pour some drinks and serve some food. As he does this, talk to him about what he's doing. This will help him to develop his language skills. As your child gets older, you can start using actual water in the cups.
