Exploration: 8-9 month old babies love to explore everything around them.
1.At this age they become interested in fitting objects such as putting a wooden egg in a cup and taking it out again.
2.Putting a ball in a cup is a new experience and a bit more challenging because the baby has to turn over the cup to remove the ball.
3.Putting a cube in a box is even more challenging because it is necessary to line up the corners of the box and cube for success.
These activities enhance hand-eye coordination and give the baby an opportunity for his two hands to work together in a meaningful way.
