August is loving these balls at the moment so I wanted to use them as motivation to move his body. I taped them to the wall using strips of masking tape - this is obviously an activity to monitor carefully if you have a babe that mouthes everything, like mine.
This game promotes reaching, crawling/scooting, hand eye coordination, crossing the midline, fine motor gripping skills and balance!! It was also a very language filled activity - we talked about the different colours and I narrated what he was doing - ''you've got the pink ball! It's smooth! Oops you've dropped it. You can put it in the basket''. .
