Games for 1 - 2yrs Moving Blocks
Moving blocks using tongs: improve your toddlers coordination by encouraging him / her to use tongs or a giant spoon to move blocks from the floor into a bowl.
This is a great activity for improving your toddlers coordination. Just make a pile of their building blocks, or toy cars or any of their toys on the floor - you could even use teddy. Then put a bowl down, or a cardboard box and see if they can move the items into the bowl or box.
At first just get them to do this with their hands, then once they have mastered thas try with either a giant serving spoon or tongs (we use our BBQ tongs). The aim is to get them used to using tools - it doesn't matter at all if they are can't do it at first.
It will take time but it is a useful way to imrove their skills and it can be a fantastic means of distraction if a temper tantrum is setting in.
