Favorite Sounds

Baby Playtime

Choose a few objects that make noise: keys, phone ringer, musical toy, etc. Show your child each object and then make the sound. Tell them the object’s name and what it does. When they respond, do another sound. Go back and forth. See which one they like best.

See what your child is learning

When your child watches you and the object, and hears the sound, they’re using their focus. When you respond to them by offering another sound and interacting, they’re engaged and their brain is actively learning new words, sounds, and reactions.
