  • In preschool, learning to cook can be a fun family activity. Let your child help with some baking! Choose a level that is appropriate – either you can help them crack the egg or you take care of the messy part and help them stir. Practice signing “egg” as you go!
  • Where do eggs come from? Visit a farm or look at a book about animals that lay eggs. Don’t stop with chickens or even birds! What other animals lay eggs? Practice signing as you observe and learn.
