activity: eating time objects




age attempted: 14 months

items: baby cup, baby bowl, baby spoon, tray

objective: build vocabulary

i first held the bowl (the one i thought he would know the least) and kept saying ‘bowl’.  then i introduced the cup (after he had a few minutes with the bowl so i could easily take it away) and then i introduced the spoon the same way.  after he had a few seconds to play/eat them, then i put the other two back on the tray so he could play with all of them.

i asked him questions like: “where is the bowl/spoon/cup” “can you put the bowl/spoon/cup in the bowl/cup” “can you eat the spoon” “can you drink from the cup”

he did well with placing the objects, but didn’t yet understand i wanted him to ‘show’ me each item. that’s the next step after exploring. we will do this activity at least once a week and i’m hoping it will help with his vocabulary.

this activity lasted about 10 minutes.

    Just wait till he starts telling you what is what! He’s got so much to say and will be doing it soon!
