  • Family photos
  • Tape
  • Plastic sleeves for flashcards/family photos

What to do:

  • Sit with your baby and flip through a magazine with brightly coloured pictures.
  • Pull out the ones, your baby points or responds to. OR
  • Choose a set of flashcards that you would like to teach your baby OR
  • Select some family photos.
  • Put either of these options into a plastic sleeve to protect them from baby (dribble, dirty hands etc).
  • Start off with 5 different pictures in each plastic sleeve.
  • Tape each plastic sleeve to the floor, where baby crawls. This area needs to be tiled in order for the tape to stick to the floor.
  • As baby crawls to each picture, name and describe what baby can see in the picture.
