Climbing Practice


  • Couch cushions or large pillows


  1. Make a big, soft pile of couch cushions or large pillows on the floor. Your toddler will have fun climbing and rolling around on them.
  2. For older toddlers, stack the cushions up like stairs against the couch and let him practice climbing up and down.
