Cause & Effect

Cause & Effect

Location: indoor or outdoor

Materials: any number of toys

Your infants are going to be exploring cause and effect in a number of different ways. Everyone is familiar with the baby dropping something from their high chair over and over again. You can explore this through play as well:

  • Roll a ball back and forth.
  • Place blocks in and out of a container
  • Drive a car back and forth across the floor
  • Tapping on drum or other instrument

What We're Learning:

  • social / emotional (enjoying playing with caregivers)
  • language / communication (using fingers to point at things)
  • cognitive (passing an object from one hand to the other, watching the path of something as it falls)
