Activity: Hold my hand, I love you

Stuffed animals
15 minutes
First words

You say, “Hold my hand and I’ll kiss your nose.” Take your child’s hand and kiss her nose.

Then say, “Hold my hand and I’ll kiss your cheek.” Kiss her on the cheek.

Repeat with tummy, toes, and so on. Once your child understands the game, switch roles. Guide your child to kiss your nose and cheek. When your child is ready, repeat the game using your child’s toy animals, substituting animal parts such as paw, wing, tail.
