When you’re waiting somewhere, ask your child to play the “Find the Opposites” with you. You call out something big and he/she responds with the opposite, something small. Start with easy comparisons, like big and small, high and low, or near and far.
When your child learns opposites and distances (near and far), he/she is learning concepts that he/she will use in math, science and reading. Remember, it is always important to play these games in a back and forth way because that is how your child learns best.
