Why we love heuristic materials
Understanding that something, or someone, continues to exist even when it's out of sight is one of the most important concepts a small baby can grasp. Games of in and out, behind and under help develop this key skill.
Engage all a child's senses with sounds and smells. Fill old water bottles with washing-up liquid, rice or lavender (and pierce the lid). Give them a shake and see what you discover.
Developing motor control
It takes a great deal of control to reach for, grab, investigate and release an object. Give your baby a treasure basket and they'll enjoy long stretches of highly engaged play every day.
