Games for Language Development

Seek-a-Boo is a great game to play with both Toddlers and Big Kids together.

Sight Word Bingo helps kids ages 4 and up with pronunciation and enunciation, in addition to reading. See my post at:

Go Fish Alphabet using letters helps your child with letter recognition, saying letters, and word association

Not a specific game but with sorting bears you can make up all sorts of games and practice colors, “on top”, “inside”, “under”, sorting, color recognition, fine motor skills.
Sorting and Sound

With this matching game, from a young age, you can start saying words, matching and sorting with these cards. As your child gets older, you can enhance with more focus on pronunciation, enunciation, memory and making logic decisions.

This indoor scavenger hunt game is great for introducing words and understanding. It took up a whole morning with my toddler excitedly looking for things and repeating the words over and over.

Toys for Language Development

These turtle steps were the surprise success purchase I had this year. They have been great for obstacle courses, fine motor and plain old fun.

I purchased this owl toy specifically to use for practicing a conditioned response with my toddler. However it’s a great all around toy for colors, numbers and fine motor skills.

My kids have never grown tired of the Mickey Mouse figurine set. We take it with us everywhere in their “purses”. With it the kids play and make up stories. We also use these in tape rescue and they play in the Calico Critters Dollhouse.

Line and Tape Sort

This Calico Critters dollhouse has been my kids favorite for imaginative play. They also use other figurines that fit in. Language is introduced for mealtimes, bath time, bed time and general things in the house like “s/he is going upstairs/downstairs”

These Helping Hands tools are great for fine motor and picking up objects within language activities.
