The Dropping Game

  • You will need a small ball and an empty coffee can for this game. NOTE: Be sure that the coffee can has no sharp edges.
  • Sit the baby on the floor and place the coffee can in front of her.
  • Place the ball in the baby's hand and hold it over the can. Open her fingers to let the ball drop into the can.
  • When you hear the ball hit the bottom of the can, say, "Boom."
  • Repeat this several times, and soon the baby will drop the ball all by herself.
  • You may need to help the baby retrieve the ball.
