Develop your baby's skills through developmental activities

by Sherry Lee 05 Jul 2022

You can play many developmentalally appropriate games with your baby. These include looking in the mirror, grasping objects and rolling a ball. Because they stimulate different parts in the brain, it is important to know which toys are different. This article is a great way to introduce these toys to your child. These are just a few suggestions:

Toys with sensory differences

Your child can develop many motor and sensory skills through toys. Sensory toys can help your child learn the rules and experiment with new things. They can develop their neural processing skills and make funny sounds. You can begin to choose toys based upon the development of your child's senses. You might consider toys that help your child make funny sounds, such as if he or she has trouble with touch.

Every child's development depends on their sensory system. Some children are sensitive to certain stimuli while others are more sensitive to others. Hyposensitivity, which can impact balance control and coordination, is one example of hyposensitivity. You may have to offer accommodations such as weighted blankets or strong foods if your child is sensitive to pain. To encourage a child’s development, occupational therapists recommend toys to stimulate the different senses.

A slime is another sensory toy that's great. Slime is a mixture of liquid and solid components. You can make your own slime by purchasing a large container, cornflour and water. It should be clean and free of toxic substances. Sensory toys that include scents may also be available, but these are best for older children. It is best to mix the materials of different toys in order to avoid confusion.

Rolling the ball

To help your baby develop motor skills, roll the ball with you. You can teach your baby to crawl, sit up, or stand on all fours to reach for the ball. When your baby attempts to reach for the ball, you can clap your hands or shout "Go!" Encourage them to keep trying. This activity will also boost your baby's self-confidence.

You can help your baby sit up. However, be sure to grab a large ball to keep him from choking. He will jump on any ball that is thrown at him. After he is able to move objects between his hands, you can start one-on-one play with him. To stimulate his senses of touch, you can use a sensory ball.

Rolling the ball helps toddlers develop motor skills and teaches them how to share. Your baby can be rolled to the side by you. You can also use this opportunity to practice your baby's language skills: "Here comes the ball!"

Grasping objects

Although your baby is able to grasp objects already, it will take time for muscles to develop and coordination. This skill will be developed through toddlerhood. The pincer grasp is the initial step. If you aren't sure when your baby is ready to grasp this skill, there are developmental activities that you can do with your baby to help them develop their grasping skills.

Your baby can learn basic skills such as how to grasp objects. You can encourage your baby to grasp objects by putting them in her mouth. A great way to help your child develop their putting skills is to use household objects and stack toys. Discuss developmental milestones with your doctor. Some babies develop faster than others.

Your baby can sort items by their sizes and colors. She can also push objects into her socks using her fingers. This improves her fine motor skills as well as strengthens her fingers. Your baby's fine motor skills will also be developed by grasping objects. She can grasp two toys at once, and can then grasp the third. This will help her improve her problem-solving abilities. Your baby can also enjoy playing with rattles. You can also encourage your baby's push-ups by raffling rattles during tummytime. This will strengthen her core muscles, back, shoulders and core. Playing in the yard with your baby is a great way for your baby to experience new sights and sounds.

Looking into a mirror

You'll see a variety of developmental milestones when you look into a mirror together with your baby. Your baby will be able to recognize that the image he sees is his by 20 months. He is also developing language skills such as the ability to recognize faces and emotions. A mirror can be used to test your baby's ability recognize himself.

You can also draw on the mirror with your baby. Your baby can color on the mirror to explore various parts of his or herself, such as the nose, ears, and mouth. You can also use bath crayons if you have them. To avoid permanent marks, make sure you test them first on a small area. Your child can explore shapes and colors by pressing down on mirrors.

A mirror is a fun activity that you can do with your baby. Mirror play will help your baby develop awareness of others as well as himself. Although he may seem confused when he first looks into the mirror, he will eventually become more focused on himself. He or she will begin to see himself more often and learn more about his or her visual identity.

Explore facial expressions

One of the developmental activities you can do together with your baby is to explore facial expressions. A child must be able to express an emotion upon request. This task can be accomplished through speech or facial expressions. This task requires both audiovisual and visual skills. The computer can be used to teach the child how to express different emotions. It is easy to use as most babies can mimic what you do.

As part of your developmental activities, observe how your baby reacts when you show them facial expressions. Your baby will learn more about the objects if he mimics your facial expressions. This is crucial in several ways. Your baby will be better able to identify objects. Your baby will also be able recognize objects better.


Repetition is an important part of learning for babies. Repetition is a key part of a baby's language and vocabulary development. Repetition helps babies recognize objects and sing, as well as recite. You can help your child develop the skills necessary to be independent, confident, and self-sufficient by providing repetition. These are just a few ways repetition can be beneficial to your baby.

Your child's development will depend on repetition. Your child can learn new skills by being exposed to the same task repeatedly. This will help him or her develop a deeper understanding of cause-and-effect. Toys can be a great way to teach your child new skills and how to use them. Your baby will learn the skill with your support. However, you should not be too distracting. Instead of pushing buttons for your child's learning, let him/her do it all on his own.

Your toddler's brain development will be enhanced if they are involved in the same developmental activities you do with them. Repetition helps them learn new words, improve their memory, and follow instructions better. Repetition, for example, can help your toddler retain details and learn new words. They also feel more successful when they are able to repeat the story repeatedly, so they practice until they get it right.


baby play with boxes

Active play can be encouraged by using boxes. These boxes are great for children younger than 5 years old, as they can be used to help develop fine motor skills and climb in. There are many themes to choose from, such as rainbows, camping, and the doctor. These boxes include activities that help children learn new skills like naming colors and shapes. You can also subscribe to boxes like the Little Learners Busy Boxes.

Another great option is Bookbox for Children. The monthly subscription box will include a variety of books that are geared toward different age groups such as toddlers, preschoolers, and newborns. Each box is specifically designed to suit the stage of each child. Each box typically contains two to four books, which can be tailored to suit any age group. Each box will also include bonus activities that relate to the book included in it.

Playing with your baby in boxes for developmental activities can help him develop the skills needed to walk. This is a great way for your child to learn fine motor skills by using his fingers to push objects into the boxes. There are many possibilities. It is important to watch your child play and provide safe and stimulating spaces for them to do this.
