Toys That Promote Language Development Help Toddler Learn To Talk
Toys that promote language development can really help your toddler learn to talk! I know because I am the Mother of a toddler girl and I use a few specific toys daily to help her learn new words! This post will be the story of my journey or should I say Amelia’s talking journey! I now have a little chatterbox who says new words daily and she is only 19 months old! Currently I am trying to get her to link two words together using various toys! Her speech is improving all the time and I am excited to see how much she has come on by her second Birthday!
I have decided to feature the toys to promote language development including my personal favorite the Aquadoodle!
Aquadoodle Toys That Promote Language Development
Do you find it difficult to encourage your toddler to speak or say new words? If so why not make it fun! I am going to show how I used Aquadoodle toys to promote language development in my toddler! It really worked for me but it took time, toddlers do not learn 50 words over night so it is important you remember that! Keep in mind I used other top learning toys for toddlers as well as an Aquadoodle.
So why an Aquadoodle? Well I combined Amelia’s interests with her learning. She is a little hyperactive so I needed something she enjoyed, something to hold her attention and the Aquadoodle worked! It was one of the fabulous Christmas toys for 18 month old girls that I definitely recommend. Like most little girls Amelia loves to scribble on a piece of paper! I realised that I should be using her scribbling as a learning aid! I wasn’t keen on the idea of pen going over our newly painted white walls so when my friend suggested we get her a water pen I jumped at the opportunity!
There are lots of Aquadoodles available including Paw Patrol ones, animal themed ones etc. but I picked a basic one by Tomy. It really does not matter which you use as they all are top learning toys for toddlers!
Aquadoodles can be used to help your toddler learn colors, numbers, counting, letters, words, animals, objects, how to write and lots more! They really are excellent toys that promote language development!
Step 1 – Let your toddler get used to holding the Aquadoodle pen! Amelia loved holding hers and scribbling randomly on the mat. I let her do this for around a week while pointing out the different colors on the mat. She was fascinated with how the mat went to orange, green, blue and yellow so quickly so this helped hold her attention.
Step 2 – Concentrate on one thing at a time! I started looking at the pictures around the Aquadoodle and telling Amelia what each one was! After a week she is now able to repeat some of these back to me when I point them out. My next stage here will be to ask her to find something on the mat to see if she remembers where it is!
A useful piece of advice is to fold the Aquadoodle up and place it out of reach during mealtimes. Yep you guessed it ours got covered in milk and as a result the water pen did not work!
Remember while toys are a fabulous way to help toddler learn to talk you should also use your surroundings and incorporate words into things you do on a daily basis! This is an awesome way to help your little one develop their vocabulary and learn new words!
