Your busy baby will love crawling over this soft obstacle course made with soft toys, pillows, blankets and towels. Plus, it is fun to discover the toys underneath!
Before I start, let me just apologize for the blurry photos. This is a moving game, so to get good shots of a baby on the move is almost impossible!
How to set it up
Choose a few soft items: pillows, soft balls, plush toys and plastic bags inside a bigger bag. Place them on the carpet like this.
W(13months) saw what I’m doing and already wanted to play. Also, a good thing he saw what is underneath, because later he “discovered” it again, making it fun!
Cover up the toys and pillows by using towels, table cloths and/or a blanket. Use different textures to enhance the learning experience.
Don’t be discouraged if your baby does not want to crawl over the obstacles, but rather get around them. That just means they are using their thinking skills to overcome that obstacle!
And don’t be surprised if they find discovering the toys more fun! (My boy was very glad when he discovered his favorite soft toy!)
Toddlers will also enjoy this came. Let them guess what is underneath the towel, jump over the obstacles, make a road for cars between the obstacles etc.
