Early Learning Activities for Babies Floating Catch


Looking for ideas and activities to play with your baby while at home? 

Much of your baby’s learning in their first year will happen naturally as you talk, read, make faces, and interact with them.

These fun and easy activities help stimulate your infant’s development — and bring on some adorable smiles and giggles.


Catch it! Gentle games of catch give babies a thrill — and help develop their hand/eye coordination.

Gather some lightweight, colorful scarves and toss them in the air so that they float down in front of your baby and they can attempt to grab them. If you don’t have scarves, you can use non-toxic bubbles in your game of catch.

As you sit on the floor together, throw a scarf into the air and catch it in your arms as it floats back down.

Throw another scarf and tell your baby to hold out their arms so that it falls there.

Continue playing with both of you catching scarves.

Extension Activities

    • Wad the scarves into balls and throw them playfully at your baby.
    • Put one scarf over your head and another over your baby’s.
    • Put one scarf over your head and let your baby pull it off.
    • Put on some jazzy music and keep the scarves moving.
