summary:

Help develop your child’s memory with this simple game.

Help your child develop their memory by playing little games with them at home. Place 3-4 objects in front of your child and give them a few minutes to memorise them. Ask them to close their eyes and remove one of the objects. Ask them to identify which one has been removed.

Also try placing 2-3 objects in front of your child again, giving them time to absorb the information. Once they close their eyes, rearrange the order they are in and ask your child to put them back in their original place. Vary the colours and shapes of the objects each day.

Try blindfolding your child and hand them objects one at a time. Ask them to identify the object and describe its texture and shape. Always praise their efforts.
