See and Say

Baby Toddler Snacktime

In the kitchen with your child, describe what you’re doing, especially if you notice they’re interested in something, like pouring water in a bowl or cup. Say things like, “Water goes in the cup.” See how they respond. They might look at you and then look at the cup.

See what your child is learning

You motivate your child to learn more about the world around them when you notice what interests them. Talking about what you’re doing introduces them to lots of new words, and helps them connect those words to things.
