Hello I'm Dr. Deborah Wheeler, I'm the Vice President of Academic Affairs for Argosy University on the Salt Lake City Campus. I'm also a clinical psychologist, and today's topic is fun educational games with your toddlers. You can find almost any game can be educational with a toddler. They're like little sponges, and they're learning all the time. Any game whether it's an educational game specifically, or just a fun play game that they would be playing with any way, can be educational. Because, educational games are both for learning, as well as for socializing. Toddlers are perfect age to take in all that information. A simple game like stacking could be a great game, because you could do it together. They can learn cooperation, they can learn colors, they can learn numbers, all of that from a very simple game. There is no need to invest in something that is expensive, or that you have to have specifically because it says it's educational for children. Take the time with the child, a simple game can be as educational as anything. Sing some songs, recite the alphabet, all of those are opportunities for a child to learn and to learn social activities.
