Sit with your child and talk to them about the things they can do on their own. Things like putting on their shoes, brushing their teeth or looking at books.
Encourage them to draw pictures of them doing these things. See if they can make shapes or even write letters. If not, ask if they’d like you to write labels for them.
Or if you prefer, you can take photos of your child doing their activities and put them into an album.
If they’ve drawn pictures, stick these into a blank notebook. Write descriptions of the activities and talk to your child about them. You can look at it together during story time.
