2 Year Old Developmental Milestones

Your toddler might be...

  • Following simple instructions

  • Using their imagination more than ever

  • Sorting things by color and size

  • Pointing to things in books and magazines

  • Completing sentences and rhythms

  • Standing on tiptoes

  • Kicking and running

  • Climbing up and down furniture

  • Using two-word phrases like "drink milk" or "read book"


  • Name the things your baby looks at. Tell them what you’re doing or what’s happening in the world around them: It’s time for bed, it’s time to be feed.  Activities like these help build vocabulary and routine.

  • Read to your baby.

  • Give your baby time to crawl and practice new movements: maybe make a trail of toys for your baby can work towards and investigate.

  • Help them with play: playing hide and seek or helping to stack blocks can work on developing your babies’ skills.

  • Let your baby explore their sense: touching ice cubes, crinkling leaves, shaking a container of rice. These activities involve touch and sound and are great for a young baby.
