18 Months

HI there

My daughter is 18 months old.She stays with my gran during the day.I cannot find a daycare that I trust.

Can you please advise me what activities I can give her to stimulate her.

There are many books on age-appropriate stimulation and I would advise that you look at any one of these. However, often children just want to play and interact with people and this remains the most important.

There are so many video's one can get (that are really educational) to stimulate the little ones at that age. Sing a longs, dancing etc. I found mine started off with Teletubbies, then Barney etc, etc. And they all have a little something they teach the kiddies. Especially with gran that can't be as active as somebody younger. Saved me many a desperate time when I ran out of ideas.....
