Games for 6mths - 1yr Grab Time
Babies love to grab objects and it is important for their development to have a wide selection of objects to play with.
Get a selection of household objects – a metal spoon, a wooden spoon a large hair clip, a hairbrush, a sock, a napkin ring etc. The bigger the variety the better it is.
Let him /her experiment with them, feeling the different textures.
ENSURE NONE OF THE OBJECTS ARE SMALL ENOUGH TO SWALLOW
Once they start grabbing objects they will then start dropping them. This is again an important part of child development – let them and keep picking the objects up so they get used to holding the objects and throwing them.
Toys that make a noise are even more exciting so let him/her have lots of rattles or make your own with rice in a small Tupperware / jar.
