Kick and Play

Baby Playtime

Does your child like to kick their legs during tummy-time? Putting things like crumpled paper or a rolled up towel behind their legs can make it even more interesting. Talk with your baby about how it might feel or sound when they kick. What else could you use for kicking?

See what your child is learning

Your child learns about the world through their senses. It is important to share words for how things feel and sound as well as the names of things. You’re helping them learn to connect language with the world around them. Giving them something to kick also helps them learn to link their actions with an outcome.
