Who has children that enjoy random household items just as much if not more than new toys??
Right! The good news is, no matter what they are interested in, any object can be used to support language development, play skills, and engagement.
I should have a guessing game…..What is my sons favorite toy of the day here??
Excuse me while I hide in shame….but really we had a blast playing with tubing for days. We practiced hiding it, finding it, and drawing it. We worked on pronouns and turn taking (my turn, your turn). It wiggled and it stopped. The vocabulary was endless and while it was still mildly embarrassing to be playing with a tube, it was cheap and fun entertainment.
So, tell me, what does your child LOVE. Let’s brainstorm some simple and repetitive vocabulary to practice with those “toys.”
