Baby Blanket Ride
Many babies love to play with blankets so why not make a game of it? This is a fun baby game that will also build your baby's balance and movement control. You will need a medium sized blanket.
Lay the blanket on the floor then place your baby in the middle - make sure he is seated comfortably and balanced. Say, "Let's go for a blanket ride!" then gently pull him around the room. Do not move too fast but do introduce easy turns to build up his balance. You can also have your partner wave hello and bye-bye as you tote him around.
If your baby protests initially, you will need to introduce the game slowly. Start with a small pull a few feet forward then add more distance each day. Be sure to carefully monitor your baby and make sure he does not try rolling off during the ride!
