Toddler Time: Little Helper

Toddlers love to imitate and do what grown-ups do! Not only is this a great way to keep those busy little bodies out of trouble, it’s also kind of the beginning of “dramatic play”! Encourage your little one to be a “helper” around the house!
I’ve noticed Big Brother really loved to imitate me and his daddy when he was a toddler (before LB was born…when he was the only one). But Little Brother LOVES to imitate Big Brother *sigh*. I guess that’s why his favorite word these days is “MINE!”
When you have a cordless stick vacuum, your little one actually can vacuum!
When cooking, let your little one have a bowl and spoon to play with.

These boys LOVE to help unload clean laundry from the driver.

Both boys are GREAT at helping clean up toys…we love to sing these songs while we work. Before I know it, I’ll be replaced in this household. :)
How do you encourage your little one to be a helper at home???


  1. Henry loves to help around the house too! I try to find as many ways as I can to let him help (and it actually helps me)

    I'd love for you to come play with us today at It's Playtime and link up this post.
