What Did Simon Say?

Simon Says is an excellent way for your child to hone listening skills and follow directions. He has to listen carefully to hear the words “Simon says.” If Simon says touch your chin, you do it. Once children are comfortable following one-step directions, give them two-step directions to follow. For example, ask them to stand on their right foot and hop in place.
