Developmental Play Tip: Babies are hard-wired to respond to movement – evolutionarily speaking, it is nature’s way of looking for predators or prey! Take advantage of this and think about things that move – they will likely be really fascinating and engaging for your baby! Play: Lay your baby on their back directly under a ceiling fan. You can even tie colorful ribbons to the fan, set it on low, and watch the ribbons spin with your baby, talking about the ribbons going “around and around and around!” You can also spin a top for your baby, play fetch with your dog while your baby is in your lap, lay your baby under a spinning mobile, or sit on the strand watching bicyclists roll by. All of these forms of movement will likely have your baby entranced. ☺
