Baby is Learning:

- Fine motor skills
- Co-ordination
- Hand and eye coordination
- Different colours
- Manipulation
- Object Permanence (ie. just because I can't see it doesn't mean it's not there)
- Where the blocks go
- How to find the blocks once they're posted
- How to grasp small objects
- What to do
- Senses. Touch. The objects are hard and have edges and corners
- Emotions. Surprise, anticipation & excitement.

Handy Tips:

Repeat this activity as often as you like as babies (and children) need repetition in order to consolidate their learning and understanding

Mix it up by giving them different shaped, sized and textured objects to post

Extend this activity for older babies by teaching about colours at the same time. "Post the blue block," "Where is the red block?", "You are posting a green block" etc.

Talk to your baby about what they are doing. This will help them begin to understand the physical and mental processes they are going through as well as helping develop their vocabulary.

Supervise. Babies must be supervised at all times. One of the main ways that they learn about objects is by putting them in their mouth, so please be cautious about what you are providing them or what they could access.

Give your baby your time. It's the best gift you could ever give them.

Happy playing,
Debs :)
