Preschoolers begin to form closer bonds with one or two playmates and prefer to play with friends than play alone.  Draws with purpose moving away from scribbling and starts to add details.

Toddlers- They're little scientists. They love to explore pushing boundries and also love to find different ways to do things and find out how things work. They love dumping bins and pulling things off walls to see what happens. Toddlers also like to feel big and they enjoy doing this by being helpful. A task that seems like a "grownup" one like sweeping with a small broom will delight many.

Toddlers - Everything is new to them so they look at the world with such excitement. They have the newfound mobility to interact with their environment and they love to use that freedom

Art projects, puzzles, dramatic play. They love anything that lets them utilize there motorskills

1. Toddlers love to explore! They are curious about everything! Their imaginations begin and they can play with other children and can entertain themselves with playing with toys. They start to become creative!

2. Toddlers love art projects, playing kitchen or sweeping (mimicking adult actions). They love helping to cook, playing with toys and interacting with other children.
