|Our friends at Vroom have lots of simple activities for how on building your child’s brain.|
These activities will spark a brain building interaction between you and your child that is joyful, engaging, and full of learning! Each activity is paired with an explanation that highlights the science behind the interaction to help you understand why the exchange matters.
Activities will help you to engage in interactions that are the Brain Building Basics:
Make eye contact so you and your child are looking at each other, or share a focus of attention.
Take your child’s lead by responding to their sounds and actions, even before they are old enough to talk. When they do start talking, ask follow up questions like “What do you think?” or “Why did you like that?”
Talk about the things you see, hear, and do together, explaining what’s happening around you.
Make each brain building moment longer by building upon what your child does and says.
