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.
