Talk and play nine day challenge

Nine day challenge

Our friends in the speech and language development team at East Coast Community Healthcare have come up with some easy fun activities to do with your little one.

These activities are all designed to get your baby, toddler and preschooler talking and understanding language.

  • Pick one a day to do with your little one
  • Complete all activities in 9 days
  • Choose your favourite ones and try to include them in your daily routine moving forward
  • Why not get your little one to choose one and play it together every day?

For more ideas and activities, visit our Talk and play page and follow Norfolk County Council Family Information Service on Facebook.

Call Just One Norfolk on 0300 300 0123 if you have any concerns about your child's speech development.
