Engagement Time: 20 mins to few hours
All of us teach, play and have fun with our toddlers (Todds) and each of this creates experiences and memories in them. Do our Todds remember everything? This blab-tivity is a simple game with twists and turns that helps to improve and enhance our Todds memory span.
My Todd loves to learn about numbers hence I have used it for the blab-tivity. You can change it based on your Todds interest.
Write random numbers on a sheet of paper. Let your Todd have a look at the numbers.
Tip: Help your Todd remember the sequence by weaving a story around it. For the below sequence, you could use this one: Seven Ate(eight) Nine
After about a minute turn the paper away and strike a casual conversation with your Todd and speak about totally unrelated things like:
- What did you eat for Breakfast today?
- Is there water in the bottle?
- Did you cut your nails?
- We need to go for a long walk today
After this ask your Todd to tell the numbers that were shown to him.
Note: The stories that you created around these numbers will help them re-collect the numbers easily.
Isn’t this a fun way to help them increase their memory span easily?
Do share your Todd’s experiences with this blab-tivity.
