1 giggling toddler!

Once your child is walking or crawling, they become pretty speedy at getting around – whether it’s on all fours or two feet! Chasing games are sure to give them the giggles and also help to improve their agility.

Firstly, choose a toddler-proof room to play this game in. When your toddler’s on the floor, rush up to them, give them a kiss or a tickle, then run away. More often than not you’ll find they want to follow you. Let them catch you, kiss them again, but this time let them run away. Repeat until exhausted!

It’s a great way to teach your toddler how to deal with surprises, and how to take turns when they’re playing a game.
