Free Parent Involvement Activity – "Discovery Bag" – Age 1

Observation & Discovery, Object Permanence, Motor Skills

Place three or more household items or toys into a standard-sized pillowcase, making sure to include some toys that make noise. Let your child feel the outside of the pillowcase, then show her how to open it up and discover the items inside. She will enjoy removing and exploring each item and may even enjoy putting them back into the bag.

Caution! Monitor your child closely during this activity. Put away the pillowcase immediately after play.
