Free Parent Involvement Activity – "Follow the Toy" – Age 0-6 Months

Sensory Awareness, Large Motor Skills

Attract your child’s attention to a rattle you are holding in your hand. Slowly move the rattle across his field of vision, gently rattling it, when necessary, to regain his attention.

As your child’s neck muscles strengthen, show him the rattle and then remove it from his view. Shake it gently to one side of him to encourage him to turn his head in the direction of the sound.
