CONTEST CLOSED, Winner: Cynthia C !!!

Baby Smarts by Jackie Silberg is a book about developmental baby games. It’s a perfect gift for soon to be parents as they wait for the arrival of their baby. These stimulating games would be well received by both mommy and daddy (and the baby). Babies are so cute that parents can play with them all day. However, Baby Smarts can help you understand the baby’s growth and developmental stage and you can easily pick the next sets of game to play with your baby.

Here is a game Under the Blanket (9-12 month olds).

  • This game develops your baby’s observation skills, demonstrates the concept of “under,” and enhances your baby’s ability to follow directions.
  • Let your baby watch as you hide a small toy under a pillow.
  • After you hide the toy, ask her to find it.
  • If she does not understand, ask her again and show her that the toy is under the pillow.
  • Tell her that you are now going to hide the toy under the blanket.
  • Keep hiding the toy in different places that are “under” something.

Mommy Niri gifted her copy of the book to Katin – a soon to be mommy. Mommy Niri readers can get a copy of the book by winning this book contest.
