2. Dance-Party Nation
3. Pillow Gymnastics
How to Play: Arrange pillows to form a stepping stone path for your baby to master or a squishy tunnel for your toddler to crawl through. Place a stuffed animal friend at the end of the trail to recognize her accomplishments. Then turn pillows into tiny trampolines she can jump on while holding your hand, or use those soft surfaces for tummy time or rolling practice.
4. Scavenger Safari
What You’ll Need: Toys, blocks, balls, stuffed animals, objects in different shapes, things with letters on them, and rooms to roam around in
How to Play: Help your infant or toddler hunt for and collect favorite possessions. Explore each room. Locate objects, provide a name for them, and add a description, such as red ball, blue block, furry dog, and cuddly kitty. Gather the toys to play with later. Name or match colors, or point out similarities and differences.
