Brain Building Tips

Vroom distils early learning research into bite-size activities that support children’s brain growth from birth to age five. With the backing of the Bezos Family Foundation, vroom.org was developed by a group of dedicated scientists, community leaders and trusted brands, with input from community organisations and families, early childhood experts and neuroscientists.

Name That Dish

Cleaning up

While you put away the clean dishes, hold each one up and ask your child to “Name that Dish!” Plate! Bowl! Fork! And so on. Make it fun like a game show. You hold up the item, your child tells you what it is, or you say what it is, then on to the next one! 

Your child learns to make connections between words and objects when he/she can see it and hear them at the same time. These connections are important to developing talking and reading skills. 

Cleaning Together

Cleaning up

Turn cleaning a surface into a game. Give your child a clean, almost-dry sponge and ask him/her to help you wipe off a surface you’re cleaning. Ask your child to wipe it clean in long lines from top to bottom. Then try making a zigzag. Then circles. See what he/she thinks of too!

Doing “grown-up work” can make your child feel very proud of himself/herself and his/her accomplishments. In addition, your child is learning how to take care of the things in his/her life and is also learning new words too!
