Ask your child to touch the clothes you’re both wearing. Talk back and forth about how they feel. You could say, “We’re both wearing shirts. Mine is smooth and yours is wrinkled.” Take turns using as many words as you can to describe how your clothes feel.

This type of conversation helps your child learn how to make connections. This is the idea that that one thing (a word) can stand for other things (what they touch). You’re also helping them learn new words and their meanings.
