Here is a simple activity that babies will love!
All you need is an empty tissue box (or similar) and some long pieces of material which you can feed in. I suggest feeding the material in bits at a time, rather than as a scrunched up ball, as it will pull out better for baby and make them work harder to completely empty the box of material.
Be sure to check for any threads that might interest and danger little ones. Obviously it’s important to supervise your baby at all times.
Possum thought this looked interesting and immediately started pulling out the materials.
She was also understanding that once the materials were all removed they needed to be put back in so the game could start over, which is a form of cause and effect.
What I love about this activity is –
- It’s so simple to set up
- Encourages babies to develop their fine motor skills
- Great for hand/eye coordination
I hope you and your little one enjoys this activity.
