Tasks for Toddlers

Tasks for Toddlers

Tasks for toddlersOnce your child seems interested in helping you, you should run with it. I speak from experience. My children are teen and tweens now and they only “help” if you pay them. Your kids will not be interested in helping you forever, so you should take advantage of it while you can. Plus, it’s good for them to learn how to do these things. From a young age they will become more capable children.

Here are some tasks for toddlers that 2, 3, and 4 year olds can easily do.
