That Makes Three

Time

  • 5 to 10 minutes

Materials

  • 3 medium-sized items such as a washrag, yarn ball, small cup, or set of keys

Directions

  1. Hand control is still developing, but with this activity you throw in decision making as well. Sit on the floor with your baby and put an object in each hand.
  2. Offer a third object, and let your baby figure out how to put down a toy in order to pick up another.

Extensions

  • Ask your baby to give you a toy.
  • Put all 3 in front of your baby and don't offer any directions.
