Where did it go?
Take a soft ball and squish it into a container with a lid.
Close your lid and ask your baby, "Where did the ball
go?" Encourage your baby to open the container and
watch the ball pop out. This is sure to fascinate your
baby and is a fun way for them to learn about object
permanence (the fact that something still exists,
even if you can t see it).
I can hear it
Hide a squeaky toy beneath a blanket or towel. Partially
cover the toy, squeak it and encourage your baby to find
it. You can then up the ante by completely covering the
toy, squeaking it and encouraging your baby to find it --
cheer and make a fuss when they do find it.
This game is another great way for your baby to learn
about object permanence.
Sit your baby on the floor and roll a toy car towards them.
Encourage them to then roll it back to you and then try
and keep the game going for as long as possible. This
game teaches the concept of taking turns.
Scavenge the toy box and find baby-friendly objects in
solid colours. Group the objects into sets according to
their colour, and then sit on the floor with your baby and
let them handle and play with the objects. As the baby
picks up each object, say its colour out loud (such as
"red bucket"). This is a good way for your baby to start
becoming familiar with colours.
Climb every cushion
Pile up a stack of pillows for a safe, fun climbing activity.
Use the largest, most stable cushions on the bottom,
then add to the stack with chair pillows and throw pillows.
Holding your baby steadily, help them climb to the top of
the mountain of pillows and stand them triumphantly on
top. This activity should be supervised constantly and
you should never let go of your baby s hands.
This game is great for the development of gross motor
Child s Play
Playing with your baby is more than just fun and games
-- it also teaches them valuable life lessons.
