Where's My Toy?

As your baby begins to wrap her head around what experts call "object permanence" (just because she can't see something anymore doesn't mean it's not there), you can have fun by playing a simple hiding game.

Appropriate for: 4 months to 1 year
Skills developed: Concept of object permanence
What you'll need: A rattle or other small toy; boxes of different sizes

Put one of your baby's rattles or small toys inside a small box. Put the box into a larger box, and so on, until the toy is encased in at least five layers. Set the box-within-a-box-within-a-box in front of your baby and ask, "Where's your toy?"

While she's watching, open the first box, take out the next, and ask, "Is your toy in here?" as you open that one. Keep going until you open the last one in front of your baby, exclaiming, "Here's your toy!" Then let her make a grab for it.

She may not understand the layers just yet, but she'll be mesmerized by the movement and the mystery.

Rock 'n' Row

If your baby's not sitting up on his own yet, he'll love to practice for this milestone by being propped up. A rollicking rowing routine strengthens his back muscles in preparation for holding himself seated. It's also an entertaining exercise for babies who've mastered sitting.

Appropriate for: 5 to 10 months
Skills developed: Gross motor
What you'll need: No equipment necessary

This singing game has you rowing in time to "Row, Row, Row Your Boat." Sit on the floor with your legs spread in a V, as if you were going to begin stretching exercises, and seat your baby facing you with a sturdy pillow or upright cushion propped behind him for support.

Grasp his hands firmly and pull his arms gently so that he leans toward you while you lean back slightly, then reverse so that you lean forward and he leans back just a bit. Sing the classic nursery rhyme with a slow and emphatic rhythm, so that you're both moving forward and back in time to each key word – for example, the rhythm of the last line should be "LIFE is BUT a DREAM."

As your baby gets used to this game, you can lean farther and farther forward and back until you're practically on top of each other – and giggling hysterically. As he gets older, he'll still like the back-and-forth game.

Remember: Each baby develops at a different pace, so if yours isn't quite ready for this week's activities, don't worry – just try them again in a few weeks.
