This could be displayed through a variety of play ideas such as taking a favourite toy/doll and placing it in different positions around the house. This could also take the form of hide and seek- the child can pick their favourite toy, then they close their eyes and count to 10 while the adult positions the toys next to/beside items around the home. You could place the doll beside the chair, the toy car next to the fridge or the ball beside the lamp. Encourage your child to use and understand both next to and beside.
