On a long ride, make up funny stories with your child. You start it off with something like, “Once upon a time there was a teeny, tiny wiggly ant..” Then let them tell you what happens next. Take turns adding to the story and see how far their imagination can go.
See what your child is learning
As you go back and forth inventing a story, the interesting, new, and fun words you use invite your child to add to their growing vocabulary. This is an important part of communicating with others.
