Friday: Play!—3-Ingredient Games

December 12th, 2008 in Friday: Play!

Parenting had a wonderful article written by Melody Warnick about 3-Ingredient Games that we have had a lot of fun with! The article had 8 games but I am just featuring the few we have tried so far. Check out the article for the others!

Here is a direct exert from the article:

SWAT TEAM (babies)

Make a slit in a tennis ball with a sharp knife. Tie a knot at one end of a piece of string, then insert that end into the ball. Tie the other end to a doorknob. Seat your baby in front of the dangling ball, and let her whack it.

TAKE-AWAY LESSON: Cause and effect. When the ball bounces away, your baby gets the thrill of making something happen. Taking aim will also improve her developing hand-eye coordination and depth perception.
