Write - Babies

  • Holding things helps children to coordinate small muscles in their hands and fingers. This is also one of the first steps toward being able to write.
  • Say this simple rhyme making a fist, then using a thumb. Development of fine motor skills also helps prepare children to write.
    • Where is Thumbkin? Where is Thumbkin? (Make two fists)

Play - Babies

  • Try out these toys with your baby: rattles, mirrors, squeaky toys, grasping and mouthing toys, small baseball-sized balls, blocks and stacking toys, shape sorting toys, and simple puzzles with 2 to 3 pieces.
  • Use scarves or streamers to float above your baby’s head and even let them land over his or her face for a moment before pulling them up and away again.
  • Blow bubbles around your baby’s face, letting a few land. Watch your baby’s delight when they pop!
