4 ways to use a doll house to improve communication skills

A doll house is a staple toy in a toy room. Below are 4 key areas that you can be mindful of at home when playing with the doll house.

  • New words: This is where you can teach names of items around the house. We like to do this with the doll house and then go and match them to the real items in the house. You can talk about what belongs and what doesn’t belong in each room of the house.
  • Doing words (Verbs): You can manipulate the dolls to perform doing words such as: eat, drink, sit, stand, run, walk, sleep, sweep, clean, etc.
  • Parts of objects: You can choose a room and pick an item in that room and talk about the parts of the item. For example, a table is found in the kitchen, it has four legs, people eat at it, it can be made of wood, it is hard.
  • Role play: A doll house is great to role play lots of different scenarios that occur within the house. You may like to use the dolls to role play bed time routines, conversations that you can have around the dinner table, house hold rules and many many more.
