Writing Activities
  • Build fine motor skills for your baby by putting items just out of reach, so they have to stretch for them. This builds the baby's core muscles, as well as fine and gross motor skills.
  • Peek a boo is a great game full of laughs and fun! It can also build fine and gross motor skills. Grabbing a blanket or towel to hide or pull it away to play along can be a great learning tool.
  • Playing in the water is a great sensory experience for babies. Most babies love water! Visit a pool near your house and enjoy the sensory experience with the baby. Allow them to feel and manipulate the water with buckets or shovels, this will encourage fine and gross motor skills needed for writing and drawing.
