A game to help baby develop her fine motor skills.

Here’s an activity to help your baby practice transferring an item from one hand to the other.

Sit to the left of your child and hand him a small toy. Give him another toy, also in the direction of his left hand. The goal is to get your child to take the item that he is holding out of his left hand and transfer it to his right hand. It may take a while for your little one to get the hang of this. (Don’t be surprised if he either tries to use the hand that is full to take the new item or simply drops the item that he is holding.)
