Whew that was fast! My third and last baby officially turned one and she is getting into everything and learning so much! So today I wanted to share a simple baby ball drop activity that will help your baby continue to develop and have fun with some spatial awareness and provide some bonding time for you as well.
This simple activity using a box, tape and scissors will be a go-to activity for your child. And all you need is about 10 minutes to set it up! I used balls in this example but your baby can actually drop whatever he/she likes (or you like) in the box and you can decide which shapes you want to cut into the box as well.
The great thing about this activity is that you can make it into whatever you like and your child will get lots of fun and learning from it!

As babies reach around 6 or 7 months of age, their spatial awareness will expand and their distance vision has improved, wanting to reach to items around them. Around 8 months to 10 months, your baby should be able to recognize when you took a toy or an object away from him and will follow it with his line of sight.
As they get older, games that involve disappearing and reappearing objects, like peek-a-boo and ball drop, can be pretty exciting!
