|Loving "Signing Time!"|
I didn't quite understand the importance of this game until this past Sunday when I took Ellie to Safari Champ, an indoor playscape. She loves this place and we spend nearly every Sunday there wearing out my little Bear-Bear. Today, I witnessed Ellie playing her own version of "I Lost My Voice". She was imitating everything a group of older children were doing--hand motions, sounds, dancing, etc. Another step forward in development! Whoo hoo, Ellie Bellie Bear!!!!!
This is by far one of the easiest games you can play with your child at home. Set aside a few minutes each day and just imitate what your little one is doing. If you feel the need to use a bean bag, you can just use a bag of rice or a bag of beans. Easy! Remember, no talking!
