Pillow Fun

Time

  • 5 to 10 minutes

Materials

  • Small pile of pillows

Directions

  1. This activity needs little more than your encouragement to provide giggles and smiles. Pile the pillows in the middle of the floor and put your baby on top of them.
  2. Fluff the pillows around her body so it feels soft and talk about what you are doing as you play.

Extensions

  • Cover your baby (except for her face) with pillows so the soft weight is felt.
  • Fluff a small pillow on your tummy and then on your baby's. Repeat gently with other body parts as you talk about what you are doing.
  • Gently roll your baby across the pillows.
