18+ | Ball Toss


Hand your baby a small, soft ball. Re-use the cardboard box from your diaper shipment to create a "basket" into which your child can toss the ball. After each toss, roll the ball back to your child. Move the box at different angles to increase the novelty of this activity.

The Science

This exercise encourages motor coordination, planning, and goal directed behavior. In addition, your baby is actively strengthening their visual processing — as they are trying to gauge their distance from the basket — and persistence as they try to make the shot!
