Hand Over Hand Game

This is a simple baby game that is very popular for most babies. It is a fun social game that also helps develop your baby's hand eye coordination.


This game can be done on the floor or while your baby is in his high chair. Place your hand palm down on the floor or table. Put your baby's hand on top, palm down as well. Next, place your other hand on top of his hand. Your baby should place his free hand on top of your hand (you may need to help and encourage him the first few times). Finally, pull out your bottom hand and cover his hand again. Repeat until he tires of the game.


It may take several tries before your baby catches on, but be patient. Eventually he'll love to play it!
