3+ | Tummy Reach


Place your baby on their tummy and hand them a toy to play with — allow your baby to hold it, shake it, observe it. Then, gently take the toy from your baby and place it just out of reach. As they try to reach for it, offer encouragement and celebrate their efforts!

The Science

This activity helps your baby focus and direct their behavior in order to accomplish a goal. Your little one will learn to persist and will ultimately experience the intrinsic joy of success once the toy is in their grasp.
