Laundry Pointing

Baby Toddler Laundry

As you do laundry, let your child know what you’re doing: “I’m putting white clothes in the washer so they will be clean” As you say the words, point to the objects (clothes, washer, soap). When they respond, continue the conversation by talking and pointing.

See what your child is learning

You help your child learn new words by talking and pointing. Also look at what you want them to pay attention to, and then they will learn even more.
