Three Hands

Baby Toddler Playtime

Hand your child safe objects or toys for their right hand and for their left. Then give them a third. How do they respond? Do they try to hold it with hands that are already full? Talk to them about what they might be thinking about holding objects.

See what your child is learning

This simple game is a fun way to watch your child’s thinking change over time. Even before they walk, they’re starting to be able to come up with new strategies to help them solve problems.
