Let Her Lead!

Tell your toddler you’re going to play a fun game called Follow the Leader. You start, in order to show her the idea. Go around the house (crawl, if you feel like it!) and stop at interesting places to play or explore something. Go faster, or slower, make silly noises she has to mimic. Then ask her to be the leader. The hope is that she’ll stretch her creativity to see what she can do that you’ll repeat, such as walking backward or balancing a pillow on her head.
