By reaching 6 months of age, babies are not as helpless as before. They are already sitting, they understand their parents well, show their character, are more interested in their surroundings, etc. This is a time when, in addition to feeding and caring for a child, it is required to pay a lot of attention to development and emotional aspects. But games that improve fine motor skills are no less important. A psychologist, a happy mother of two kids and the winner of the sympathy contest, which was held by one of the online casinos here, Evgenia Tomilina, will share with us the secrets of which toys are best suited at this age.
Tips for the development of babies from 6 to 12 months can be very different and everything here largely depends on the temperament of the child. It is especially difficult to captivate fidgets for a long time. They constantly want to find something new in the world around them.
Children at this age begin to pay close attention to small objects. They have an excellent effect on the development of fine motor skills of the hands, which contributes to the rapid growth of the child and the best development of everything new. But here it is important that the baby is constantly under supervision, since children have a stubborn habit of dragging everything into their mouths. Therefore, it is worth protecting them from such details when you leave the room or go about your business.
In addition to small toys, children try to play and test their strength by lifting large objects. Do not limit them in this – put a ball, a bright small pillow, a soft volumetric bear, etc. next to them. A child from the whole pile of toys already chooses the one with which he wants to play – tell him about it. For example, if this is a typewriter, pronounce its name clearly and slowly in syllables, describe the shapes (large, small, long), create the sound of a car.
Children love to throw toys from a height (crib, table, stool). After everything is overturned, collect the objects in their original position, and the baby will start throwing them again. This is not whims or a manifestation of discontent, but another kind of game that he will play endlessly.
