Box play – Baby
Did you know?
Babies can learn about their body in space through crawling through boxes.
Provide the words that go with what your baby is doing e.g. crawling “through”, “in”, or “out”.
Playing peekaboo with objects inside a box helps to develop your baby’s awareness of object permanence.
Boxes are great for banging on and make great pseudo drum kits for babies!
Across the ages
Activities listed under “baby” are suitable for children under 12 months. This age is largely about babies exploring their own bodies and the world around them from the safety of a close relationship with their caregiver.
