  • Have your child reach into the bag, find one item and guess what it is as they pull it out. ( Older toddlers can close their eyes during this step.) If they do not know the object’s name say it out loud and then have them repeat the name. Place the object on the tray or mat.
  • Repeat until all objects in the bag are placed onto the mat.
  • When completed, have your child say each object’s name as you return it into the bag as part of putting their work away.
  • Change objects in bag as often as you want and enjoy!!!
