About

Before your baby's first birthday, crawling and even walking will be the next big milestones to conquer. Help your child learn how to crawl around or step over things by creating a mini-obstacle course.

How To

What You’ll Need:

  • Small blocks, cardboard boxes
  • Small round or square plastic containers, pails
  • Stuffed toys, pillows
  • Blanket

 

Place a large blanket on the ground and scatter the items on it. Make sure each item is far enough apart so you and your child can step or crawl around it. If your child is crawling, show her how to crawl around the objects. If your child is learning to walk, hold her hands and help her step over each item.

Benefits

  • Balance
  • Gross Motor Skills
