Fun Brain Boosting Activities For Toddlers

Proper nutrition is imperative for a child's growth. This includes providing enough DHA for brain development. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is the predominant fatty acid that the human body cannot produce. By including DHA in your child's diet, you are providing the building blocks for brain development. It is, however, even more important to begin bonding with your child through brain-boosting games.

Eating can be fun!

Picky eaters are a constant source of frustration for parents. To help their children develop healthy eating habits, parents can start by making eating a fun activity. Parents can introduce a variety of textures (for example, rough, smooth, or sticky foods) to their children. You're probably wondering what the benefits of this are, aside from cleaning up the mess they've made. It's definitely more beneficial than you think. It not only helps your child deal with picky eating, but it also allows them to explore their world through touch, taste and smell while making a mess.

Finger Painting

Similar to the first, scribbling on the drawing paper is a fantastic art and sensory experience. Teaching them how to mix colors to make new colors is a lot of fun! You can even prepare carved potatoes to make "food stamps".

More scribbling

Introduce your children to writing in baby steps. Watch your child’s face light up when they finally learn how to write their names.


Sounds like an old-fashioned game but it’s the most enjoyable way to develop navigation skills. Running to hide or seek may help them gain stamina while also improving their balance and agility.

Role Play

A fundamental activity to enhance communication and language skills. They learn empathy and understanding of different perspectives when they act out real-life scenarios, and it also trains them to develop strong problem-solving skills.

Have you done these activities with your kids? If you haven't already, start now before you miss out on your child's most critical period of brain development.
