North, South, East, West
- Small toy, book, or household object
- Show your child north, south, east, and west by using your home as a reference point.
If your child's bedroom faces east, point out the sun rising in the morning. Show the sunset through a window facing west.
- Once your child has her directional bearings, hide a small toy or household object somewhere in the house.
- Give directions to its location: two steps to the north, three steps west, and so on.
