Milestones: 12 months
Celebrate children’s growth by remembering important milestones!
Together, watch the video and meet little Rudy at age one! Ask children:
- Why do you think Rudy’s daddy, Freddy, keeps a memory box?
- Why do you think Freddy was so happy when he found the pots and pans in the moving boxes?
- How do you think Freddy was feeling as he watched Rudy bang on pots and pans and get silly with his colander hat? (proud, happy, excited). Why do you think so? (Rudy was growing up and learning new things.)
And…take time to savor the memories of toddlerhood!
