Toe Tales

Baby Toddler Playtime

As you sit with your child, hold their feet and touch each of their toes, making up a story about each one. The small one is a little piglet that goes “oink oink” The next one is his big brother, etc. Keep going and respond to what they do and say!

See what your child is learning

When your child hears words and feels your touch, they’re making connections in their brain between words and actions. When you respond to what they do and say, it helps them to develop the foundation for talking and reading.
