Getting a Little Messy

mudMost children enjoy playing with dirt, sand, mud, water, and other materials with different textures, sounds, and smells. Such play develops the senses.  Ask your child questions about what he or she is doing?  How does it feel?  What does she smell?  What sounds can he make?  This will improve your child’s narrative and vocabulary skills.
