Parenting Tips for Your 23-24 Month Old Toddler

Your child will like closing her eyes or putting on a blindfold to touch different objects and guess what they are.

How to Play

  • Ask your child to sit on your lap facing away from you.
  • Place a blindfold on your child; if the blindfold is scary to your child, just ask him to close his eyes or to turn his head.
  • Bring together objects the child knows well like a spoon, rattle, or small stuffed toy.
  • Give your child different things one at a time to feel and ask him to guess what he is holding.

Other Blindfold Guessing Games

  • Put familiar things in a box or paper bag and ask your child to put his hand in the box or bag.
  • Have him tell you what he feels or ask him to take out of the box or bag the items that you name without looking at them.
