As you shop, let your child help by holding some stuff. Choose the items by color or let them point to the one they want to hold and name the color. “You’re holding the yellow box. What else is yellow” or “Can you hold this brown box”
See what your child is learning
Children learn best when they’re interested and actively involved. When your child hears you name the colors of what they’re holding, they begin to make connections between words and their meanings. This will help them learn to talk, read, and communicate in the future.
