The memory game

This is an easy game to play at home. It encourages your child to talk, think and play.

This fun memory game will help your child communicate and solve problems.

First, gather some of your child’s favourite toys, books and objects. They can help you with this. Put them together and talk about what’s there.

Next, ask your child to close their eyes and turn around. Remove some of the items. Then get them to open their eyes and see if they can list what’s missing.

You can play this game the other way around, with your child removing the items and testing your memory.
