You can create a goody basket around 8 or 9 months to further develop your baby's dexterity and cognitive abilities. You will need a medium sized basket (wicker works well), plastic bowl or small box. Also assemble different toys, blocks, small articles of clothing, and balls.
Put the items in the basket. Sit your baby on the floor then present him with his goody basket. Let him to take items out of the basket - you may need to encourage him to keep going as he gets distracted with each item. Once they are out, assist him in putting them back in the goody basket. It may take some practice, but he will catch on!
