Last Updated: March 29, 2024

Embark on an exciting Concepts Adventure, an educational journey designed to introduce your child to fundamental concepts such as ‘over/under,’ ‘big/small,’ ’empty/full,’ and more.

This interactive guide is tailored for young children, including those with developmental delays or special needs, offering a playful approach to learning essential concepts through engaging activities.

Detailed Activity Instructions:

Setting the Scene:

Create a dynamic learning environment filled with a variety of objects that vividly illustrate different concepts, ranging from sizes to positions, sparking curiosity and exploration in your child.


Demonstrate the concept of ‘over/under’ using a familiar object like a chair or table. Place a toy under the table, stating ‘The toy is under the table,’ then move it over the table, saying ‘The toy is over the table,’ reinforcing the concept through clear visual and verbal cues.


Introduce the concept of ‘big/small’ by showcasing objects of different sizes. Present a big ball and a small ball, emphasizing ‘This is a big ball’ and ‘This is a small ball,’ allowing your child to grasp the concept through direct comparison.


Explain the concept of ’empty/full’ using a container such as a box. Begin with an empty box and then fill it with toys, illustrating ‘Now the box is full,’ providing a tangible demonstration of the concept.

Other Concepts:

Explore additional basic concepts like ‘hot/cold,’ ‘soft/hard,’ and ‘light/heavy’ using safe and appropriate household items, enriching your child’s understanding through real-world examples.

Addressing Potential Concerns:

Difficulty Grasping Concepts:

Focus on one concept at a time, using clear and repetitive demonstrations to reinforce understanding. Encourage hands-on interaction to actively engage your child in the learning process.

Limited Attention Span:

Capture your child’s attention by incorporating playful activities with their favorite toys. Keep examples short and straightforward, ensuring that each concept is easily digestible and engaging.

Overwhelm or Confusion:

Avoid overwhelming your child by introducing concepts gradually, starting with the simplest and most tangible concepts before progressing to more abstract ones. Focus on mastery before moving on to new concepts to prevent confusion.

Objective of the Activity:

The primary goal of ‘Concepts Adventure’ is to build a foundational understanding of basic concepts, fostering your child’s cognitive skills and language comprehension. By engaging in playful exploration, your child develops essential skills that lay the groundwork for future learning and understanding.

Closing and Additional Tips:

Exercise patience and celebrate your child’s progress, no matter how small, acknowledging each step forward in their learning journey. Integrate these concepts into everyday activities to reinforce learning and encourage curiosity. Embrace the adventure of understanding together, nurturing a love for learning and exploration.
