When you are out and about, think about asking “wh” questions as much as possible, such as “who do you see? What do you smell? What color is this? Why is the dog barking?” Engage all of your toddler’s senses. Ask him what he sees, hears, smells, feels and even tastes. Encourage him to look for details, such as finding colors, shapes, letters and numbers around the world. Make it a game. Say, “who can find the most things that are green? Who can spot a puppy dog?” Or, “who can find the letter “A” first?”
There are so many opportunities to explore in the supermarket. Point these out while you shop.
Narrate what you see while driving and point things out to your toddler.
