@alisha-- I had read in a journal article before that playing with a toddler in a way that promotes an activity of some kind is a great way to help with perceptual and cognitive development.
I agree with this because I have experienced it first hand with my son. We always have play time during the day and we play different games, read books or listen to songs. I think that trying a variety of different activities and letting your toddler discover and be active is key for development.
I see development in him every single day. The other day, he did the most surprising thing. My husband couldn't find one of his story books and my son has a lot of them. So my husband was searching the house and also asked my son if he knew where this book was, referring to it by name.
My son walked over to one of the couches and found the book underneath! He knew exactly which book my husband was talking about and my son is not even two yet.
So my recommendation is to spend time with your daughter, try and find different kinds of activities and games for her to engage with as she grows. And let her discover and make connections on her own. I have friends who are so scared about their kid falling or hurting themselves and they limit their activity inside the house and outside. I don't think that's very good for their development.
