Here is a fun guessing game while waiting. Start with, “I’m thinking of an animal” Then give your child clues to help guess what animal it is. For example, “I’m thinking of an animal who lives in our house and is black”
See what your child is learning
Playing games like this help develop what scientists call “working memory.” They are using working memory to remember names and details. It also turns waiting-time into a fun time for learning!
