What Toddlers Like To Do?

What Toddlers Like To Do?

It is a fun parenting experience to raise toddlers. Are you wondering what your baby would like to do in toddler years? Read on and find about what you can expect your baby to do in toddler years.

The activities of toddlers cannot be explained in simple and few words. This is mainly because every child is different and acts and behaves differently. However, there are some common activities of toddlers and precautions that the parents should take. Toddlers are unaware of the problems or dangers involved in what they do. So, it becomes the duty of the parents or the babysitter to be alert and watchful always.

The first and most important precaution is the safety of the child. No matter what your child is doing you should be checking it constantly or if possible stay with him all the time when he is awake and moving around. Toddlers are exploring the world and this is the most exciting time for them and the most dangerous one too.

Common Activities of Toddlers

Here is what you can expect in the toddler years of your child. Read on to find what toddlers like to do.


Toddlers like to explore and that too on their own. They learn different types of things and become aware of different aspects of life through this attitude. They learn about the new world through their falls, bumps, relationship and many other such activities. They pick up anything they see and like and then compare them with other objects.

Listen and Talk

Toddlers like to listen to you when you talk and they also try to talk in their own way or imitate your way of talking too. There are many things you can teach your toddler at this period of time. Make him aware of the clothes and other accessories he wears and learn about the colours also. Just keep in mind that it will take time and you must enjoy this playing and teaching through daily activities.


Toddlers want to have a company to play. If possible take him to a children’s park and let him have interaction with same age group of children. This will help him have natural and good growth. When you play with your child make sure he takes interest and you should move on to another activity or game as soon as he looses interest.


Toddlers ask lot of questions. Sometimes parents get irritated because of some repeated questions. This is the biggest mistake they do. Listen to and answer the questions of your toddler in the best possible and clear manner. Pay attention to him and his queries. Be patient because toddlers ask many questions as they are on their way to learn about the world.


You will see that your child likes to see pictures in magazines and books. Bring home books that have large pictures and a story too. This will help him develop reading habit and will also help in proper brain and mental development.


Since toddlers have a different fascination and attraction towards their toys, keep them in a low shelf so that they can reach out and get what they want. Make sure the toys and shelf are safe for the child. You can also encourage your toddler to take care of his toys and keep it back and arranged on the same shelf.

The activities of a toddler are immense. They are learning and discovering the world around them. You can help the child develop good habits and right attitude at this time of their life. Remember, things learned at this age remain a habit throughout life. Follow a schedule and stick to it as far as possible.

Toddlers are curious by nature. Kindling the curiosity helps him in exploring different avenues and finding the answers to many of his questions by himself. for eg if he touches a hot object accidentally he will know how it feels and will be careful the next time.

My toddler asks so many questions that it is very difficult to handle him sometimes, but I try to answer him always.
