In this activity your child writes about an object in detail.
Place the objects in the middle of a table. Choose one of them and describe it to her. Explain the importance of including the details that make it different from the others. Have your child help you describe it. Remove that object from the pile.
Have your child choose one of the other objects to write about (without telling you which one she chose). Explain that her writing should be very detailed so that when she reads the description to you later, you'll be able to pick the object out of the group. When she's done writing the description have her read it out loud and then you can guess which object she wrote about.
