With Tummy Time

Mirror play and toys just out of reach make tummy time a bit more fun!

Babies love to see themselves in a mirror. Place a mirror securely in front of baby and place a nice baby safe mat down on the floor in front of the mirror, place some baby safe toys around baby to encourage baby to stay on his tummy and try to reach for the toys.

Some babies love tummy time others hate it, if baby doesn't enjoy tummy time there are different way to do this activity with baby, these fun ideas are listed in our infant curriculum lesson plans.

With A Play Gym

I Can Do It! Babies love this play gym.

I love that I can switch out the toys each week. Plus I can add the links to make the toys hang lower so baby can easily bat them. As baby gets older, around 3 to 4 months old, he will begin to grab the toys and bring them to his mouth to chew on them, and everytime he kicks he gets rewarded with music, what could be better!

Fun Exercise With Balloons

Slowly move your hand into baby's direct line of sight and wait until she seems to be focusing on the puppet. Next, begin speaking slowly, for the puppet. You can say something like, "Hello, I'm quack, quack the yellow duck."

As you speak for the puppet, bend your hand forward {hand puppet} or move your finger forward {finger puppet} like the puppet is talking to baby.

Discovery Baskets For Infants

Discovery Basket
Heuristic Play Materials

What is heuristic play? Heuristic comes from a Greek word eurisko "meaning to discover", heuristic play was developed about 30 years ago by Educational Psychologists, Elinor Goldschmeid. Heuristic play offers older infant different types of textures and different types of items for the babies to explore to help them develop their senses; touch, smell, hearing, sight and taste.

Some of the items that we include for the older babies to play with would be plastic jars, plastic jar covers, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, napkin holders, mega blocks and many other items.

The fun items we included in our infant discovery basket above is a water bottle, plastic containers, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, mega blocks, foam blocks, large knobbed puzzle pieces, round cloth coasters, and some plastic square alphabet pictures.

These activities are for infants 6 months and up.

What Are Sharing?

Infant Activities Heuristic Play Materials
What About Sharing?

Babies that are mobile don't understand how to share and that is why we try to include items to use in our curriculum that are very easy to "provide a lot of them" so there are plenty of items to go around and less stress to the baby's "feeling they need to share".

One theory behind heuristic play is that you "provide a lot of materials" and only leave the materials down for a short time while the children are being "observed" playing with the items and the teachers let them play with the materials; however they want, as long as they are not hurting themselves or anyone else.

We decided to use some of these "types of items" in our curriculum and to turn them into "learning activities" this way they are playing with the items and learning with them too! In our infant curriculum we have tried to incorporate some heuristic play items with a touch of Montessori ideas and some preschool themes (changed for babies) to make our "hands on learning curriculum."

What Are Sensory Activities?

Sensory Activities

We have provided a lot of sensory activities which include touching different textures such as fake fur, velour, corduroy, felt, and other types of textures along with handling different types of items such as water bottles, which are of course empty and clean, and teacher will need to hot glue the cover on, jar covers with no sharp edges, hair rollers, and many other items along with some water play on their high chairs and some finger painting with corn meal or strained carrots with a bib on and in their high chairs.
