Learning Stages

Encourage your child to make up a play with five random household objects you have placed in a sack. Examples: a hat, rolling pin, bracelet, hair roller and rubber ball. Silly uses count!

This inspires your child to see things in new or different ways through imagination. If she gets stuck, reach in and model how you create meaning by using your imagination.
