I made these for my son when he was very young – before he could talk. They are great for increasing vocabulary, promoting language development, strengthening communication skills, and decreasing frustration for children who are not yet talking. I initially put them on my fridge and let my son explore them. We talked about the pictures (I only started with a few at a time) and related them to the real thing when we could. Eventually I used them as a way to let him make choices at meal and snack time (when he wanted to) – great for instilling self-worth and giving them “control” over their choices (empowering them) at a young age. I would set a few aside at meal/snack time and ask him to pick what he would like to eat. He loved them.
Total Cost is $3.50
