How to play with your child: Encourage your child to use all other senses apart from sight. Give clues as the child touches objects (e.g. this is something that you wear when it is hot outside) If your child is not sure, ask them questions like (i.e. is the object soft or hard? Is it round or square?) Ask your child to describe the objects as they try to guess.
