18 month old and 3 year old
its the common situation of younger one always wanting what what the older one is playing with
i can ask the older one or i can myself give the younger one something he can play with
i can start to tell the younger one that its the older ones turn and he has to find something else to play with, i dont think that will go down well
i can tell the younger one that in5 minutes it can be his turn but if its imaginary play that can go on for a while thats really not fair to the older one.
i can ask the older one to give the younger one a 2 minute turn as young kids will finish with a toy usually quite quickly and then the older one can have it but its a bit ridiculous as its just constant that anything the older one is playing with the younger one tries to take
i can at times put the older one on a table so its harder for the younger one to just snatch it
what have you found works please.
and i can explain to the older one why it happens that the younger one thinks that he is so clever thats why he wants to follow him and copy him and play with everything he is playing with.
