12-16 month activities

It also addresses visual motor skills by having to look and motor plan where the block is an be able to accurately place it on top of the other block.

  2. Patty Cake: Playing Patty Cake is a fun interactive game where your baby starts to imitate you. At first, you will put your hands over their hands to show them the different movements and then sit across from them so they can watch how you do it.

  3. Obstacle Course:
