Children learn new words, letters, and sounds when you talk, read, sing, and write together. Play allows children to practice everything they've learned!
Here are some practical ways to PLAY with your baby:
- Dance around with your little one! Singing and dancing to a familiar tune is a great way to bond with your child, plus it's a lot of fun!
- Play Peek-a-boo with your baby. This simple game is great for amusing your child and helping them learn about the world around them.
