What Comes Next?

Have your child get their favorite stuffed animals ready for bed or naptime. Ask your child, “What steps do you go through to prepare your animals for bed?” Some of the things might be, putting on pajamas, brushing teeth, washing your face, and going to the bathroom. Tuck the animals into bed and read them a story. Children love to play and pretend and this simple activity helps them with sequencing and patterns.
