This interactive activity is a great activity that you can do with your infant to encourage him/her to track a toy with his/her eyes and eventually figure out that the object doesn't disappear when it is out of sight.
What You Need:
What To Do:
- Support your baby on your lap so that you can see his eyes. Hold a toy where his eyes are looking.
- Move the toy slowly and notice the way he follows it with his eyes. After a few moments, give him the toy to play with while offering kisses and encouraging words. “You watched me move your rattle back and forth and up and down.”
- To keep his interest, change the directions of the moving object and by using different toys.
- Choose a toy that makes noise and move it out of his sight after he has had success following a toy with his eyes.
- Observe how he reacts when he can no longer see or hear the toy. Think of creative ways to make the toy disappear and reappear. The toy can hide under a blanket or shirt, peek behind a curtain, or sit under a hat.
