Developing Early Skills

Here are some ideas to help children develop their early skills.

Play is important for language development and imaginative thinking. Here are just a few examples of play activities.

Using the Senses:

Give your child experience of lots of different things to play with – many household objects are interesting for children.

These activities are best carried out on a regular basis and may need adult supervision.

  • Things to feel and look at – baby mirror, pieces of soft material, soft toys.
  • Things to hold, shake and bang – balls, rattles, bricks, bells, cotton reels and wooden spoons.
  • Tracking – Your child may learn to follow toys with their eyes – balloons, bubbles, finger puppets and puppets on a stick are interesting to watch.
