Play

Read from board books every day as part of a bedtime routine. Read for a few minutes at different times throughout the day. 

Babies and toddlers learn about language and their environment through play. Play also strengthens the motor skills and eye-hand coordination necessary for learning how to write.

  • Say nursery rhymes with playful actions while holding your baby close to you.
  • Have fun with fingerplays like Itsy-Bitsy Spider. They help build fine motor skills while children learn about rhymes.
  • Play the game follow the leader.
  • Encourage your toddler to scribble on paper with crayons. Print her name on the drawing and hang it up together.
  • Read from board books every day as part of a bedtime routine. Read for a few minutes at different times throughout the day.
