Toddler Talk Thursday was created as a place for moms and dads of toddlers to come together over a weekly topic and share ideas, go-to toys, or products. It is a great way to meet other bloggers of toddlers. Each week the topic will be different; we invite you to link up, share your weekly Toddler Talk!!

Each week the hosts will travel around to each blog to see what topic your suggest for the following week. If we choose your topic - you will be our featured blog.

Keep the GREAT suggestions coming. We have an on-going list we will choose from each week. Some topics are ones we have done in the past - but that doesn't mean we won't revisit them!!

In order to qualify for this you need to blog about this week's topic, and follow the hosts.

And the end of your post - suggest a topic for next week.

Comments letting us know you are participating are always great too. If we choose your blog, we will link back to your post the following week.

This week's Feature Host is:

Mommyhood and Wedding Bells!

This Week's Topic: How do you teach your child the alphabet or numbers?

Thank You for letting me co host with you ladies.  I was so excited to get the invite, and am happy to be here.

How do I teach my toddler the alphabet or numbers.  My toddler is not a huge talker yet so this can prove to be difficult.  There are so many great activities you can do to teach these concepts that are fun and educational.  We do alphabet and number magnets on the fridge.  We count when we go up and down steps.  We count objects as we are getting them out or putting them away (like cleaning up toys).   We draw #'s and letters in the bath tub with shaving cream.  Flash Cards when we're in the car or playing.  But mostly right now we are just reading books, and enjoying being  a toddler.
