What Toy Is It?
- Sit your baby in a high chair.
- Pick out three of her favorite toys that have one-word names. For example, choose a ball, a doll, and a block.
- Pick up the ball and say, "Ball."
- Pick up the doll and say, "Doll."
- Pick up the block and say, "Block."
- Ask your baby to pick up the ball. Next, ask her to pick up the doll, and then the block.
- You may have to do this several times before the baby associates the words with the objects.
