Active, Coordinated Movement
Your Baby's Pushing and Pulling!!
As your baby's walking skills improve, he'll find that with his hands free, he can now multitask! Some favorite toys at this stage include pulling and pushing toys, such as a baby stroller, toy vacuum cleaner, or a dog on wheels with a string "leash." he may also start to use his hands to carry things as he walks, something that wasn't possible when he was crawling. Encourage him to work on this skill by asking him to help with easy household tasks, like putting his dirty clothes in the hamper or his books back on the shelf. In addition to practicing his Active, Coordinated Movement skills, he will also feel a sense of responsibility and self-worth by being a helpful part of the household.
