Talking Activities
  • At mealtimes, talk to your baby as you prepare the meal. Talk about the food you’re preparing, how much of each ingredient and what you observe (observe colors, textures, or smells). Use words like bubbly, saucy, simmering or boil. Cooking is a great way to build vocabulary.
  • Go outside for a walk, hike or sledding. Make observations as you’re out and about such as the rustling of leaves, the sounds of the birds or how the clouds look in the sky. Talk to your baby about what you observe as you’re outside.
