They love to dance to music and run around! The backyard has a playhouse, picnic table to have snacks at and a trampoline so you can stay close to home with them but still get them outside and in to the fresh air.
Our kids play together a lot and have been attending daycare together too, both since they each were 1 years old so they are used to listening to a teacher, following routines in the day, having structured learning time and understanding expectations. But you must be calm, patient and firm. The younger one is getting more in to what the older one likes, this can be both a great thing and a challenging one :) They love LEGO and puzzles, building race tracks, train tracks, drawing and painting, and playing Ninja! They also really like to help make meals!
