Baby Steps Through Pretend City
Would you like to attend an event dedicated specifically for babies? Do you have questions about feeding, napping, crawling, or just want to enjoy an event where you and your baby can come and play and socialize with other parents in the community? If so, please join us at Baby Steps Through Pretend City! This is your opportunity to ask questions, meet other parents, and engage in developmentally appropriate activities and exhibits.
You may not have realized that Pretend City was designed with your infant in mind, but with so many excited, older children playing in the museum, it may be hard for your little one to get around. This monthly event allows you to take advantage of these exclusive, infant only times by engaging in age-appropriate facilitated activities which will teach you about your baby’s developmental milestones.
Here are some fun activities for you and your little one
Beach: Lay your baby tummy down on a blanket or towel while sitting near their head. Use a toy or your voice to encourage your baby to lift their head and shoulders off of the blanket. At 6 months, they may try to reach for the toy while balancing on one arm. Try this to improve movement and strengthen muscles!
Home: Help your baby find small toys that you have hidden in bowls or cups. Show them how to dump the containers to get the toy. This increases their thinking and problem solving abilities!
Grocery Store: Let’s get talking! Help your toddler put away or restock groceries. Hand them specific items while naming and describing them. Your 18 month old may repeat the word.
