Playsounds are sounds and noises that babies and toddlers make during playtime. They include noises such as;
animal sounds ( “meow, woof” )
car noises ( ‘brrrrm”)
exclamations ( “uh oh!” )
and anything else that sounds symbolic and fun!
Making these noises during play or daily routines with your baby and toddler is helpful for learning language. They often act as a bridge to copying words. Use lots of sing song (intonation) in your voice too! Watch how your baby looks at you when you do this as they are keyed into hearing all the ups/downs in your voice.
