Playing cards : Tummy Time / The Sit Up Champion / Play Recipes
We’ve got no doubt the midwife or paediatrician has told you the importance of tummy time. It strengthens their back, neck, arms and legs, and teaches them to pivot and reach (the precursors to crawling). The problem is, we’re yet to find a little one who simply adores being on their tummy.
Before long, they’re whining and whimpering, and that coffee you just made is left to go cold.
The ‘tummy timer’ deck will not only give you a moment with a hot cuppa, it will create a happy baby who loves playing on their tummy. The activities in this deck can also be done on their back, providing a great distraction during nappy changes!
Recommended for children aged between 0-6 months. All activities must be done under adult supervision.
The sit up Champion:
The ability to sit unassisted is one of many exciting milestones. You can finally put them down while you cook dinner or CEO a multi-national conglomerate.
Encourage them to sit for longer while stimulating their ever-growing brain. This brain can often feel frustrated at their lack of mobility or ability to get objects that are out of reach. Each idea not only entertains, it teaches fine and gross motor skills, language skills, cause and effect, tactile discrimination, and more.
Recommended for children aged between 6-12 months. All activities must be done under adult supervision.
You’re probably picturing chunks of eggshell in the cake batter, but don’t worry. That’s not what the play recipes are.
