You can use photo flashcards to develop understanding of nouns and verbs, and can also do some simple phonics spelling activities.

My Playhome

This is good for developing simple vocabulary (eg. boy, girl, baby, apple, chair). You can name the objects as your child touches or moves them. When they get used to the vocabulary, you could ask your child to follow simple instructions (eg. ‘give the boy an apple’, or ‘sit the baby in the chair’), or more complex instructions (eg. ‘give the boy an apple and give the girl a drink’ or, ‘go into the kitchen, sit the boy in a chair and give him some pizza’).
