How to build your toddler's motor skills ..

Filling up and dumping out
As your child's daily wake of destruction has made perfectly clear, emptying a container requires a lot less precision than filling one...

- I'm not surprise here as Aisyah is one of the living proof of household destruction..

Dressing and undressing
Putting things on and taking them off is a toddler obsession, which you've doubtless discovered if you've ever dressed your child in her Sunday best only to find her stark naked ten minutes later...

- I soooo agree with this, she's more of a 'pants on the ground' kid. Sometimes i just feelthat its of no use buying cute dresses as she make us well understood that she would most prefer half naked.. god give mercy to me..

Drawing and scribbling
Sometime between the ages of 12 and 18 months, your toddler will probably attempt to "write" by making marks on paper...

- I dont have to comment this, our walls have been her master piece..

Stacking, sorting, and stringing
From carefully balancing one block on top of another to placing colored rings on a pole, stacking (and knocking down, of course) is a toddler tradition...

- Knocking, yes. But i dont recall ever seeing stacking..

Poking and pinching
Toddlers are sensualists above all else — they love to smell, taste, and touch...

- Haha.. this sooo true.. but most of the time is biting my ass...
