3 GAMES TO PLAY
1 Roll a ball
Your little one will really love playing this simple game. Gently roll a ball and encourage your baby to follow it. When the ball stops, he will naturally want to stop too to get the ball.
2 Set up an obstacle course
Lay down a blanket, doona and rug for your baby to walk over. He’ll need to work out how to alter the way he’s walking on a surface that isn’t completely flat, so he’ll probably stop and assess each different surface as he encounters it.
3 Play a game of copycat
Be his mirror and walk alongside him, and stop when he does. Then walk again – and stop – and you’ll soon find he copies you.
