Learning to talk through play
Why is this important?
Imaginative play is crucial for learning new skills and practising these skills in a safe environment. Play is vital in encouraging language development.
What to do
Gather together dolls or other soft toys and one of the following:
- Doll’s tea set.
- Empty bottles, sponge, flannel, toothbrush, etc.
- Bottle and bed (a shoe box will do).
