In brief: Their level
Play on their level and communicate.
Readin is always best, but doing puzzles and simple games with your kids can be a wonderful stimulus. Blocks and balls with colors while you recite colors is great. Just being with them and stimulating them is wonderful play!

In brief: Couple suggestions
This is a very physical age complete with climbing, running, and throwing.
Gates are helpful ways to limit movement, although they may provide only a brief obstacle to a persistent climber. They love to climb up stairs if available. Blocks, containers, nesting bowls and stuffed animals are popular at this stage.
