Toddlers love to be helpful!
Encouraging them to help with tasks develops listening skills, turn-taking, concentration and builds their self-esteem.
They could help give you the pegs when hanging washing out, set their plate at the table for mealtimes, find their PJs before bed.
Remember to keep instructions simple and have realistic expectations.

It might look like a mess to you, but your child is learning. They are discovering new textures, smells, colours and objects. They may learn or create new language for their discoveries. They are also using their imagination to work out what they have found and how they can use it in their play.
