  • 52 card pick up...I know its sounds crazy, but if you throw them over top of the baby he'll think its hilarious, and he'll help you pick them back u p if you throw them again, my son (27 months) and I play it all the time, and have been playing it since he was about 18 months old

  • Children that age aren't really equipped to play board games or things along that lines. You can start teaching him about taking turns though. Get a bowl of goldfish crackers. Give him one and say "your turn" then take one for yourself and say "my turn". If you do this often enough, he'll start to get the idea but won't really be ready to try learning to play a game until he's 3 or 4.

    Follow his lead and play with him and whatever he's playing with.
