At play with baby: shiny paper

What is baby Clara doing today?

She’s getting ready for the holidays!

Paper red, silver, and gold…

This paper feels a little bit cold!

Cut the paper into small pieces and stick to laminating paper…

And Clara can explore some more!

See what Clara’s mommy made with all that shiny paper…

As with anything you do with babies – always monitor what they do and don’t let them eat the paper!

    This is perfect! So much better than plunking a baby down in front of an “educational” video.

    I stumbled across this website while searching for Infant lesson plans. This is a really great idea. Who would have thought that something so simple could foster growth in all developmental areas! I also like the format of the plan itself. As a Nanny, this is very useful in showing parents who are interested in seeing what their child is doing during the day. Please post more ideas for infants!
