Play With a Purpose

I try to structure my 2 yr 4 month old’s play. He will have specific activity to work on, but will also have some open play. Today’s activity is sand discovery. He rubbed his hands in the sand. He played with it a little bit. Once he was comfortable with the texture, I hid some of his toys in the tray. He loved searching in the sand and finding different objects. We played multiple times. Every time he pulled an object out of the sand, I took made sure he named the object in Spanish. It’s another creative and authentic way to include Spanish into our everyday life. I kept sneaking in new objects into his sand tray. After a while, he was hiding objects in there too.
