Activity Games for your crawling child
1- Build a Tunnel
Coax your little child into scampering through a tunnel by opening the two ends of a cardboard box. Rolling a ball is one of the ways of encouraging him/her to follow it and cross the Tunnel. A child’s smile is what matters, This is the fun activity where the child learns to explore.
2- Entice the child with Textures
Sensory play is a natural way for infants and younger children to explore their environments by using all or some senses such as sight, hearing, smell touch, and taste. As they explore the world around them children are indirectly contributing to their development progress. Thus enticing your child with texture can do wonders. Knowing how it helps is important but knowing how to play is the most important.

Toss some Different textures on the floor, such as a bath mat(rubbery), soft cotton balls, scrunched paper. This will help your children to Explore. This is one of the sensory activities.

Crawl crashing is a very fun activity that helps to make your child quick. This eventually helps him/her to take fast decisions in future life without any extra effort.

4- Play Catch
Eye-hand coordination begins to develop from the age of 4 months to 14 months when a baby begins to explore the world around them through hands and legs. Together with visual input and developing fine motor skills a baby begins to grasp and hold objects while fine-tuning these moments as they grow. However, it is important to know how to do this in a fun way!
How to play?
This is an easy fun game, that teaches your child hand-eye coordination. Sit baby on the floor in front of you and roll a ball over to them. Then encourage them to pick it up and throw it back to you. It might take a few tries, but eventually, the baby will start throwing the ball. Not necessarily right at you, but that is all part of the fun and they will keep improving their directional skills over time.
Pull toys seem a little old-fashioned but they promote different aspects of your toddler’s development. Problem-solving, whole-body coordination, and fine motor strength are few amongst all. Let’s get into how to play this game.
