Initiative and Curiosity
How to Use Novelty for Learning
As your baby masters the use of her hands, she'll be able to reach towards objects she's curious about, so keep an assortment of colorful toys with varying textures for her to explore. Using new activities and toys can stimulate your baby's learning, but take care not to overwhelm her with too many choices. Instead, try to match her current interest level and stage of development for the best learning and development. You can also scaffold her learning - modeling how to use new objects - or let her watch her peers to learn by example.
