In the Bag

Baby At an Appointment

Before you go out, grab some safe things for your child to play with and put them in a bag. While you’re waiting, reach into the bag and talk about what you find. “This is something for you to chew on. Here’s a rattle for you to hold. Let’s shake it!”

Talking about what’s “In the Bag” is interesting to your child and will help them build their vocabulary and their brain. Speak in full sentences. It’s okay to use words they don’t know yet. That’s how they learn!
