- Shiny metal bowls or similar objects
Participants: This activity is intended for independent play and child-adult interaction.
Step 1: Place your baby on her tummy on a blanket or other soft, safe place on the floor.
Step 2: Set the bowls down in front of her so she can see herself in them. She can touch, explore, or even bang on the bowls.
Step 3: Talk with your child about what she’s doing, for example, “Look, I can see you! The bowl is shiny. You’re tapping the bowl.”
Learn More: Try adding an object, such as a plastic spoon, soft fabric swatch, or smooth piece of wood, to increase your child’s engagement.
