Outdoor time




What to do

1. Spread a blanket on a soft area on the ground and enjoy some outdoor time with one baby or a small group of babies.

2. Point out things like birds, butterflies, trees, grass, and so on.

3. If the baby is crawling, lie on one side of the blanket, spread out your arms, and encourage the baby to crawl to you.
