Your infant may be beginning to track your finger moving slowly from side to side. Try moving a small toy from side to side while your infant is secured in an infant seat. Infants are usually attracted to the color red at this age, but any bright colored toy will do. Hide the toy behind your back asking, "Where Is It?" Pop it out saying, "Here it is."
Children love poetry! Recite the rhyme as you touch each of your infant's toes. "This little pig went to market. This little pig stayed home. This little pig had roast beef. This little pig had none. And this little pig cried 'Wee-wee-wee all the way home'."
Children learn using the sense of sight. Place your child in an infant seat facing you. Take a stuffed animal and say, "Here is a baby bear." Take the bear and put it behind your back as you tell your child, "Where did the bear go"? Place the bear in front of your child again saying, "Here is baby bear." Repeat the activity.
As your child faces you, place a sticker on your forehead and watch the reaction. After awhile, place the sticker on another part of your face, (your chin, nose, eyelid, tongue, cheek), as you repeat the activity.
Children love seeing themselves! Hang a non-breakable mirror on the wall at floor level in your infant's room. Place your infant in front of the mirror. Observe your infant's reaction. How does your infant respond?
Children understand language through play. While your infant is on a soft blanket, hold both of your infant's hands in yours and stretch your infant's arms gently out. Curl them in and wrap them in a hug about your infant's body. Say "In again", "Out again" as you continue.
