With your child, model taking turns playing with building blocks, puzzles and playdough.
Age 3 to 5
On a large sheet of paper, have your child trace another as s/he lies down and stretches out her/his arms. After the tracing is finished, both can fill in the details as they work together.
Then the child who was traced can outline their partner.
Display the tracings together and point out that the kids couldn't have made them without helping each other.
