Soon after their first year, you'll start to see your little toddlers begin to mimic you and other people they see around them - this is all part of how they begin to understand the world around them.  A really fun game to play at this stage is to sit opposite your toddler and have them copy your moves.  Make simple moves like opening and closing your hands, stretching your arms, nodding your head and wobbling your body.  You'll find the reactions entertaining as sometimes you'll find a move that your little one struggles to interpret and will mimic in a funny way!

After a while, swap roles and copy what your toddler does.  They'll be fascinated by the idea that they can 'control' what you are doing!

If you have a video camera or a digital camera that takes video that you can play back through your television or a computer, take some video of your toddler doing their moves.  Again, they will be fascinated being able to watch themselves back on the TV or computer.
