Toddlers love to imitate and work on coordination skills. Here’s a great activity for your toddler to review colors and giving a “Hi-Five”. Take your toddler’s hand and draw an outline on some paper. Cut it out and use it as a pattern to cut out handprints in different colored felt. Now put the handprints all over the floor, couch, table and ask your toddler to find the “green” handprint and give it a hi-five! This is also a great activity for a group of toddlers!
- paper and pen to trace your toddler’s hand
- It is important to use your toddler’s hand for the pattern so that he/she can see that it is a copy of “her” hand. That makes it special.
- You can count the number of handprints you have also.
