Sit down together and get some photos to look at. These could be printed out or on your phone. Try to choose photos of friends, family or pets – people who your baby will know.
Look at the photos together. Try not to flick through them too quickly. Give yourselves time to look and chat as you go.
Name each person you see. Try describing them to your baby. Mention their eye colour, hair colour or the clothes they’re wearing.
Encourage your little one to name the person in the photo. You can tell them what you like about that person and how you know them too.
Good to know
Using different describing words builds your child’s vocabulary.
