Observe what the child does when he notices the napkin or when he manages to grasp it.
Does he try to do it again the next time you offer it?
Collect different colors and patterns of napkins.
The child is practicing the instinctive skill of grasping something when the palm of the hand touches it. This can be quite exciting to a young baby because he is actually making something happen.Cognitive learning takes place when the child begins to notice this cause and effect. Gross motor skills are also involved as the child twists to one side and reaches out. Intentionally letting go isa skill that comes later. Watch for it to begin.
