In this guessing game, you will think of an object you can see in the room and give your child clues to figure out which object you are thinking of.
Introduce the game by saying to the child: “Let’s play a game. I will go first so you can see how to play. In this restroom I see a mirror, makeup, toothbrush, and toothpaste (point to each item as you name it). I am going to describe one of these things. See if you can figure out which one it is.”
“I see something to clean my teeth with.” Give the child an opportunity to guess what it is. If the child is hesitant to provide an answer, continue to provide clues. After the child has guessed correctly, describe a different item for your child to guess.
After several rounds, turn the game over to your child by allowing her to give clues. You can say, “Describe it and give me clues, but don’t tell me the name of the object.” If she struggles to give clues, ask her open-ended questions like, “What is the object used for?”
Continue the game as long as your child is engaged.
