Imaginary Flower

Does your child like to pretend? Tell him/her that there is an imaginary flower growing on his/her nose. Describe what it looks like. Then pretend to grab it! Now say there is a flower on his/her ear and grab it too. Have your child describe and grab the flowers on you and enjoy the joke.
