Your little one is building small muscle control. His small fine muscles are those in hands and fingers. He will use his little fingers to switch on and off lights, fans etc.
What you need to know
Your little one has discovered that when the switch is on, light glows and when it is off, it is dark. He wants to explore his new findings. He may apply the same principle to a battery- operated riding toy. Small muscle control is very important for your child as it involves activities like writing, playing, colouring. You can get him to play with lego, puzzle pieces, etc. When your child has discovered switching on and off electrical stuff, please ensure he is safe. He may do it for few times and then look for something new and exciting.
