When your child drops their spoon on the floor (and they will!), pick it up and give it back to them saying, “The spoon is falling down, down, down” How long does it take until they drop it again? When they do, talk about falling down again.

Make sure you feel comfortable with what your child throws on the floor so it’s not annoying. This game is the beginning of understanding cause (dropping a spoon) and effect (the spoon falling). You’re helping them learn this by connecting words to their actions.
