  • Play this game with your toddler and at least one other person.
  • Choose one person to be the leader. Everyone sits opposite the leader, including you with your child on your lap.
  • The leader's job is to perform a simple action with his fingers or toes that everyone else can imitate.
  • As everyone imitates the leader, encourage your toddler to do so, too.
  • Name the person you are imitating: "Daddy is wiggling his finger" or "Susie is wiggling her finger."
  • Guide your toddler through the actions until he can perform them alone.
  • Using fingers or toes, try wiggling, rolling them in a circular motion, moving them in a grasping motion, shaking or holding them stiff, then relaxing and hitting them together.
