Pointing Power

In this activity, you will help teach your baby the names of objects that she points to.

Pointing Power


  • 5 to 10 minutes


  • None


Everything has a name, and it is fun to hear the words. Teach your baby to point at objects so you can say what they are. It will quickly become a game to your baby.


  • Reverse the game by asking, "What's that?" as you point to objects.
  • Play this game in the car as you look out the windows.
