Sightseeing at Home

Baby Playtime

Go sightseeing in your home! Walk with your baby and point out different objects. Describe an item and if safe, let them touch it. Say, “Do you feel the lamp shade? It is rough. Watch what happens when I turn on the light.” Pay attention to where they point or look and respond.

See what your child is learning

Your child learns by watching and listening to you. When you sightsee at home, you’re developing the skill of focus—paying careful attention to details—while also making connections between words and actions. They’re learning that what interests them matters!
