Here's an idea, ask your child to make up a tale about what is happening in the scene and fire up their imagination. You will also find that little moments of praise from you can really all add up to a kids sense of self worth and confidence in later life. This is a fantastic way to help your little ones learn their colours, shapes, and verbs for items such as hair, dress, legs, chin etc. As your children work, help them pick up the correct names of things they are working on, like chin, cars, pets etc. Oh, and this is a fantastic way to teach colours to your kid.
