Toddlers learn by playing and they learn a lot between ages 1 and 3.
At 1, a child may be working on a wobbly walk and just starting to use words. But by 3, most can balance briefly on one foot and speak in short sentences.
Toddlers love to sing and dance. Songs with hand motions are a great way for toddlers to learn fine motor skills. Children begin doing small hand motions at around 18 months old, but after about age 2 they are ready to do most of the hand motions to their favorite songs.
Some of their favorites: "Itsy-Bitsy Spider", "Patty Cake", "If You’re Happy and You Know it Clap Your Hands".
