What the Expert Says:

    Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk with a great question!
  
       You can learn about animals through setting up a pretend zoo and reading about the behavior of zoo animals. What do they eat?  Where do they live?  What are the names of the baby animals?  Learn about their fur or skins?
 
      You also could teach basic elements of motion through outdoor exercise with scooters, bikes, etc. ("See the wheels turn, if they don't then we can't move").

      Food dyes are also fun to teach about colors and how they change and blend.

      Have fun and be creative. It is great that you want to expand your two year olds knowledge!  Bravo to you!

Two year olds love experimenting with the properties of water: how it pours, how it moves, what floats & sinks, how washing rocks makes them turn dark, or using a paint brush on concrete.  Giving them a  of cleaned plastic water bottle 1/4 filled with water along with spoons, plastic cups, cup measures, plastic lemon or limes, "eye" droppers... let them watch it drip, try to fill cups, creat ripples . . .
