I got my bag on Amazon! It is the Leather Diaper Bag Backpack by Miss Fong. It also comes in different colors like olive, black, blush, navy, red, and gray. It is very similar to the Fawn Design diaper bag, but the inside has mesh pockets instead of leather, which I like because it is more flexible and lightweight!

About this video: Simple Kids Vocabulary Learning Activity at Home with a diaper bag
What if you had never seen a diaper bag before? For our toddlers, the world is filled with wonder and new experiences. Let's be their guides and surround their new experiences with words that they can learn to store up in their brains to use to have conversations with us in the future.
How can you use your diaper bag to help your toddler learn new words? In this video you'll learn how you can look at any object through my blueprint so that you can introduce your toddler to new vocabulary while you do normal, everyday things...like playing with a diaper bag. If you're looking at this diaper bag and thinking, "What else is there to say than...its a diaper bag" this blueprint is for you! You can download it at learnwithadrienne.com (my gift to you)!
I’m Adrienne, I’m a Speech-Language Pathologist, and I help parents, like you, feel more confident and excited to make tiny tweaks to your daily life to transform mundane things into engaging, learning experiences for your toddler.
Think about how much language you shared with your child.
You used a variety of words (nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions), phrases, sentences, exclamations, and questions.
We just did the blueprint with the diaper bag, think of all the other things we could come up with if we talked about diaper changing time. Maybe I'll make that into a video in the future.
Why are these language skills important for toddlers? Well, for now, it helps them learn a TON of new vocabulary words. It boosts their curiosity, because you are modeling what it is like to be curious. Remember: TALK and TEACH, don't test! The goal is for them to have so much fun that they don't even realize they are learning complex skills from you! Think about how you feel, you learn when you are having fun, NOT when someone is peppering you with 100 questions in a row.
Let know in the comments, what is your toddler's favorite thing to do outside? Swing, walk, ride in the wagon or stroller? You never know, your comment may turn into my next video! Comment below, I can't wait to read it!
I make videos and online classes to teach you techniques that help your toddler talk clearly, listen well, and gain life skills.

Continue strengthening your own creative muscles and sense of wonder, because your toddler is watching you and learning from you, especially in the ordinary moments of life. You just learned something new for yourself that will benefit generations to come because...toddlers today become leaders tomorrow. You are teaching them how to communicate to connect. See ya next Tuesday with my video about how to use the blueprint with toilet paper rolls! Have a creative week, friends!
