Homemade skittles

Playing homemade skittles out of household objects improves your toddler's coordination and communication skills.

You could use rolled-up socks as the ball, and empty bottles or toilet roll tubes as the skittles - remember to recycle them afterwards!

Encourage your little one to describe what they are doing and you can count the remaining skittles together.
