IKEA has a very affordable set of miniature furniture and a ‘playboard’ house. You can use a cardboard box to make a ‘dollhouse’.

Use the furniture in the doll’s house to play out your words – doll in bed, close the fridge etc.
2. Treasure Hunt
Hide some ‘treasure’ around the house. Talk about where it might be – in the fridge etc.
Use photo labels to stick on furniture around the house.
