Make a simple obstacle course at home.

Once your baby starts to crawl they are able to explore their environment on their own. You can make a simple tunnel obstacle course to challenge them. Begin by collecting 2-3 large cardboard boxes ensuring your baby is easily able to fit through them. Remove any tape or staples that may be attached to the boxes and cut off the flaps. Stick the boxes together with tape. Place things such as stuffed toys and pillows in the tunnel to create obstacles.

Place your baby at one end of the tunnel and yourself at the other opening. Call out your baby’s name or wave a toy, encouraging your baby to come towards you. Always praise your baby’s efforts and cheer when they accomplish the task.
