Visual Discrimination, Language Skills
Use household items to teach your child the concept of sizes — big and small.
Bring out two or three differently sized spoons. Lay them before your child and talk about which is the biggest and which is the smallest. Shift the spoons around and then encourage him to pick up the biggest one. You can follow this up with differently sized bowls, plates, pans, utensils, socks, etc.
Use other everyday objects to discuss longest, shortest, fattest, thinnest, etc.
