Even paper, crayon, paint and other art supplies of our daycare can be a way to interact between toddlers. We can simply encourage them to interact by asking question regarding their artwork. We can ask some simple question such as what do they think about the color that their peer use or whether they like the other toddler way to draw certain object. Do not forget to ask them to describe what they do each other while doing the daycare art project. Explaining to each other is a kind of effective communication types to increase children social skill. When they finish doing their work successfully, we can give them praise and prize.
Arrange a date for toddler of our daycare with other daycare children play together
Let children play together and create an interaction on their own. Keep accompany them in a first several minute. Do not forget to provide such supporting tools like toys, crayon, block, puzzles, dolls and other. Never put the toys that being a toddler of our daycare favorite to avoid any conflict to happen. It is needed to put their favorite things away to prevent any conflict and teach them to share. Remember to minimize our involvement during the process to make the interaction process held naturally. Provide a sufficient snack to support their enjoyment time.
Music is a great way to held social interaction between toddlers. It is simply because daycare toddler usually loves to hear music, sing or even dance. We can arrange an activity dealing with their preference of music. Make a group and ask this daycare toddler group to dance together while listening to such favorite song. Be sure that we choose the music and rhyme that appropriate to toddler age. Make it simple, repeated rhyme and small words to make toddler easier to follow. Ask them to sing and dance together while holding on each other hand.
