18+ | Ribbon Play


For this activity gather together a string or ribbon and any object or material with an opening--a paper towel tube, a hollow block or large bead can all work. String the ribbon through the object and engage your baby as you demonstrate how to pull the ribbon through the hole. Allow your little one to give it a try, and narrate what you observe as they carry out this playful exercise.
