Encourage your two-year-old to run, jump, and climb out of doors. Sing simple songs with her. Sing and act out songs with simple movements or finger plays. Play pat-a-cake. Children this age enjoy hearing simple short stories, especially about themselves or other two-year-olds.
By age two, your toddler should be well on his way to eating an adult diet, although it should be one that is fairly free of salt, sugar, and excess fats. He should be getting foods from all the food pyramid groups, but don't count on your toddler eating what you would consider a square meal at every sitting.
The two-year-old is developing language skills and can combine three or more words in a sentence. She is able to express her feelings and wishes, and still has a limited attention span. He can memorize short rhymes and join in simple songs. The two-year-old likes to make choices even though she has difficulty doing so.
