Your Little Explorer

While a box of toys is fun, a baby this age may enjoy the box as much as the toys.

Clean, chemical-free household objects (which do not have small parts to choke on) are fascinating to babies. An empty paper-towel tube, a crackly paper (never plastic) bag, or a cooking pot to bang on with a wooden spoon can amuse babies for hours.

Look for safe objects in your home that will stimulate your baby’s desire to learn about different textures, shapes and materials. Supervise her playing and keep a sharp eye out for unsafe objects that may be within her growing reach.
