Developmental Benefits

Your toddler is a great imitator—which is one of the ways he learns. Turn the tables on him and play a game of Copycat, where you do the imitating!


  • Bring your toddler into the playroom and set him on the floor.
  • Sit down next to him, imitating his exact body position.
  • Every time your toddler moves or does something, do exactly what he does.
  • See if you can tell when he catches on to what you're doing!


  • Your bodies


Stop the game if your toddler gets into anything dangerous and deal with the problem before you continue. Don't tease your toddler or upset him with your imitating.
