Child Development Activities
All children grow and change at their own pace through a set of developmental domains:
social, physical, language, intellectual, creative and emotional (it can be helpful to use the acronym S.P.L.I.C.E. to remember them).
Below you will find printable activities you can use to build up your child's skills and abilities in every developmental domain.
Bonus printables! Young children thrive in the structure and predictability routines provide. Here are two checklists to help you create the right conditions for optimal child development in your home: a bedtime routine checklist (pdf) and a morning routine checklist (pdf).
