Motor Skill Activities for Babies

Motor Skill Activities for Babies

The first year and a half for any baby can be a tough one. Once a baby is able to sit up, they usually desperately want to move but can’t. Once a baby can crawl, they want to walk but can’t. My little guy is in the stage of wanting to keep up with his sisters but not quite walking. He is also a climber to his own peril, and has tumbled off boxes, down a few stairs, and only just recently learned how to safely get off the bed by backing up and sliding off. I try to encourage our baby to practice new movement skills by holding his hands and walking him around, setting up obstacle courses for baby to clamber through, and encouraging my baby boy to feed himself using a spoon. On the flip side, I don’t want my baby to grow up too fast so I’m enjoying every day of him being little and dependent. Here are a few ways we encourage baby to practice his motor skills and learn through sensory play time.
