My daughter loves challenges.  She actually challenges me everyday to create something new and challenging for her to do and learn.
I figured out that so far, learning different language would be the “hardest” task for her to do, and it seems that these language activities that I created; she played longer.
So I use 10 different envelopes (Write 1-10 in Cantonese) and 10 Popsicle sticks (which you write the number 1 – 10 on each one) and for her to do matching. I sticks the envelops on the wall and she matches with Popsicle sticks. Since I don’t want to create pressure for her to learn a different language, I draw out a chart (you can click here and download it) that has the number 1 – 10 and the 1-10 in Cantonese writing. So when she is unsure, she can go ahead and check it herself, which I think this will help her to start self learning.
However, since my little 2 years old still too young to learn language, (we tried it out the other day learning body parts, and he got totally confused after we switched back to English, I decided that he wasn’t ready), so instead, I use colored Popsicle sticks to match the colored envelope.  Same idea, except, for him to learn colors and sort colors.  So it is a kind of good activity for both of them.
