Baby Show and Tell
Age: baby, toddler
Skill for Bub: Just for fun, Mind Builder
A simple activity for introducing your child to the world around her.
Everything is fascinating to a new baby. Even everyday household items are something to behold! This mini version of the classic classroom activity is an entertaining way to teach the names of items in your home and beyond. Hold up an object in front of your child, such as a piece of dishware or a type of fruit, and describe what it is. Be sure to add in descriptive adjectives to enhance learning. (i.e., “This is an apple. It is red and round.”) You’ll be surprised at how quickly your little one begins to recognize things in the months to come.
