Toddlers love to join in with pretend play. It is a great way for them to have fun using their imagination while developing language and social skills.

More ideas:
Talk with your child about all the places they have been or where they may liketo go. What are the different ways of getting to your destination?
Could you travel by, plane, bus, train, car, boat... or what about a helicopter?
How far away is your destination and how long will it take to get there?
Would it take longer in a car or a boat, or a plane?
What is a passport? Do you need one for your destination? Where canyou use a passport?

Set up a ‘plane’ at home, using rows of chairs. Who is going to be the pilot?
Make sure you have your belt fastened before you take off... up, up and away!
What can you see out the window?
