Together, watch the video of a brother and sister figuring out how to play together. Ask, “How did Timmy and Tina Twiddlebug solve their problem? How did they play together?”

Try these everyday strategies to help kids practice turn-taking:

  • Play games that require turn-taking, like simple card and board games.
  • When you cook together, take turns adding ingredients from a recipe.
  • Take turns picking out books to read before bedtime.
  • Take turns making marks on a page to create a beautiful picture together!
