I was doing some reading on toddlers the other day. Well not just toddlers but 18 month old toddlers... Can you believe my baby is 18 months old. I can't. Where does time go? Anyway, I was reading what an 18 month old child should be doing and what they should be playing with. The article said they should be using their imagination (check), pretend play with a tea set or a baby doll (check). They should be playing with toys like colored blocks, musical instruments and puzzles.
We don't buy a lot of toys. I would rather buy books but I also think kids should play with toys. So... Yesterday we went on an adventure to buy some blocks, musical instruments and puzzles. If you are looking for these things check out Target.
Lucy loved the musical instruments.She loved the tag that came on it too.
Want a block?
She was pretty proud of her new toys and really enjoyed playing with them. I just let her play with the instruments and the blocks. Tomorrow we will play with the puzzles and the doctor's kit.
Note: Autumn ate one of the wooden blocks and it made me so mad!
Another Note: Lucy can stack 8 ABC blocks before knocking them over.
