- Gather magazines and let child cut out 2 smiling (happy) faces
- Glue faces on the blue piece of paper
- If cutting is too hard, can tear out the faces
- Place finished paper in prominent spot in home (refrigerator, child’s door, etc.)
As mentioned in directions, let child tear out the pictures if using scissors becomes an issue.
Cut out as many happy faces as there are people in the family. This encourages child to think of how numbers relate to objects.

Touch Your Nose
(Activity 25 Month 2)
Touch your nose, touch your chin, That’s the way this game begins.
Touch your eyes, Touch your knees; Now pretend you’re going to sneeze.
Touch your hair, Touch one ear; Touch your two red lips right here.
Touch your elbows where they bend,
That’s the way this touch game ends.
