A fun activity for your toddler

Beanbags are a fun way for your toddler to work with her ever-expanding motor skills. She'll enjoy the satisfying heft of a good beanbag in her hands, and she'll appreciate the ease with which she can handle it – and the fact that it doesn't roll away like a ball when she drops it.

Good for age: 18 months (but older and younger kids might enjoy it, too!)

Skills developed: gross motor skills

What you'll need: two small beanbags and a large container, such as a laundry basket or trash can

Safety note: Beanbags can be found at your local toy store (try a learn-to-juggle kit). Make sure you supervise your child when she has these, and don't let her suck or chew on them, as the filling can be a choking hazard.

Join your toddler on the floor and give her a beanbag. Let her experiment with it – she may want to explore the fabric and weight for a while, or drop it to the floor and pick it up a few times.

Place the basket or container next to you and drop your beanbag in. As you retrieve it and drop it in several more times, suggest to your child that she do the same. After a few rounds of this, move the basket a little farther away, and show her how to throw the beanbag into the basket.

Applaud wildly when she throws his bag, whether or not she gets it in. Encourage her to pick up her beanbag and try again. And don't be surprised if your inner cheerleader comes out when she does make the basket – you may both be whooping for joy.

Alternatively, you can make your own. Simply take an old pair of socks and cut off the upper part so you're left with just the "foot." Fill up the foot with a safe, soft substance such as couscous, bulgur, or oatmeal.

Then, tie a knot at the top to keep the contents from spilling out. (True, it's not an actual beanbag, but since beans pose a choking hazard, it's best to go with something safer when you're making your own in case it's not as sturdy as the store-bought kind.)
