The Birth of a Book Habit

Writing Activities

  • Introduce art and painting to your baby by painting in the bathtub. Give your baby a clean paintbrush and encourage him/ her to paint the walls with the water.
  • Blow bubbles outside. Bubbles are a fun playful component of learning but promotes fine and gross motor skills. Have your baby catch, pop, or chase the bubbles depending on age and development.
  • Never too young to make a creative art project. Be prepared to get messy and that is okay. There are many crafts that promote fine motor skills in babies such as playing with shaving cream, painting, using markers. All of these options can be easily done outside or indoors on a washable service.
