It only takes a few minutes to prepare for a listening and language rich Valentine Hunt. Cut up paper hearts and place them around the house. Give your child a bag to collect all the paper hearts they find.
Cue your child to LISTEN then say the clues through hearing alone.
“A heart is under the table.”
“A heart is on the chair.”
“A valentine is where you brush your teeth
or hang your coat.”
Let your child HEAR the clue before you point to the heart.
Ear contact before eye contact is critical to growing your child’s brain for auditory skills.
