Let your toddler play dress up in Halloween costumes. Talk about putting the costumes on and taking them off. Encourage your child to say “on” and “off.” This activity will also develop pretend play skills and overall language skills.
Complete a jack-o-lantern activity with your toddler. Label the body parts and have him or her repeat the names of each body part after you. Ask your child to point to the body parts you ask after he or she has finished the activity. You can find a fun jack-o-lantern activity here: http://bit.ly/1XduTP5
Sing the song, 5 Little Pumpkins Jumping on the Bed (similar to 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed). The repetition in the song will help your toddler begin to vocalize familiar words he/she hears over and over throughout the song such as head and bed. You can find the song and a fun video for your toddler to watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvC-vqNnwqY
These activities are all part of my new toddler speech and language activity calendars which will be released soon. Please check back for more details on my blog or Facebook page!
