It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane!

Baby Toddler Snacktime

Tell your child their food is an airplane and make the food fly around until they open wide so you can land it in their mouth. Make plane noises and talk about whether it is flying high, low, or in circles.

See what your child is learning

Your child is learning to focus by watching you bring their food to their mouth. As they learn to feed themself, they can also pretend their food is flying into their mouth.
