Language development is essential and enables learning in all areas. Engage your young toddler in a few fun activities to help develop their language skills.

  • Sing songs to teach new words. Encourage your child to join in.
  • Play the point and name game. Point to objects at the park or on a walk. Encourage your toddler to use words.
  • Talk constantly to your little one. As you dress your toddler talk about the color of the clothes, the way the clothes feel, and body parts you’re dressing.

Doing these activities regularly will build and expand vocabulary. Very soon your little one will use their own words!
