Toy Throw Game

Basket Throw Toy Game

Basket Throw Toy Game

This simple fun game assists in developing hand-eye co-ordination. Show your child how to throw their natural rubber toy gently into the air and then catch it. Younger children can do a very gentle throw; older children can throw just above head level.
Increase the challenge by introducing a hand clap between throwing and catching. (ie throw, clap, and catch), or a one handed catch for older children.
Remember this is a game, so it doesn’t matter if your child continuously drops their toy, praise them when they throw their toy, and whether they catch or drop the toy, practise will improve their skills, but having fun is so much more important.

Alternatively, gather the sensory toys together, put a laundry basket a short distance away and take turns throwing the toys into the basket, once your child gets good at this game, you can move the basket further away to increase the challenge of getting the toys into the basket.

A simple safe fun game to play with your child or children but with so many possibilities…

Visual Memory Tray Game

Visual Memory Tray Game

Visual Memory Tray Game

This game is excellent for children using any of their toys from the toy box.

We have found combining the visual memory tray game with Kimbee sensory development toys, children can really benefit from using the Natural Rubber  toys as they hit all the 5 senses: Sight, Sound, Taste, Touch and Smell, giving a child’s brain full stimulation.

Memory is used in everyday life.  This game develops basic memory skills which include the ability to recall information.

Put 3 or four sensory toys on a tray, look at each toy with your child and talk about each character, the colour, whether its a bird or sea creature, reptile, bug etc… (some fact finding information). Ask your child to look away and remove a toy. See if your child knows which toy has been removed. Take it in turns removing a toy, once your child has mastered this try removing 2 or 3 toys, or try moving the toys around on the tray to keep it fun.

Ways To Keep Your Baby Warm And Snuggled Up This Winter

Snuggled Baby

With the weather turning, newbie parents begin to get worried on how to keep  their newborns warm in such harsh weather conditions. You want them to be  comfortable and able to wriggle about, but not cold enough to get a chill, which  can lead to hideous colds. Here are a few ways you can keep your newborn warm  and comfortable.

Buy Winter Clothing Invest beforehand in winter clothing for your  baby. You will need warm shoe socks, fleecy hats, warm snow suits, coats and  thermals. Since heat loss is mostly from the head and feet, it’s vital that you  get warm clothing that targets these areas. Layering is also a good idea as it’s  far more effective than having one warm layer, so invest in thermals to go  underneath, a warm all in one suit and then a coat.

In colder climates, they use wool for every item of clothing, including  underwear, as it has such great insulation properties. So it may be about time  you learnt to knit, or ask Granny to make some clothes for him or her.

Keep Him Or Her Warm In the Car Although cars do eventually heat  up, it may take a few minutes or so, which may seem like nothing to you but for  your baby this can be pretty uncomfortable. So plan ahead and heat up the car  before you put baby in, and when using a car seat remember to wrap your baby up  in a blanket, but not too tightly as your baby may want to wriggle and move  around freely.

Avoid the Elements With younger babies, you should not take them  outside for long periods of time, even when wrapped up. But when you do make  sure they are protected from the elements in their pushchair. Use a blanket to  snuggle them into and shade them from wind, sleet, rain and snow by using a  clear protective cover, which attaches to the pushchair. Check upon baby  regularly to make sure he or she is okay.

Check Baby’s Temperature Usually babies begin to cry and scream  when uncomfortable, alerting you to the fact they are hungry, cold or too hot,  but since babies can only tell us that something is wrong, we need to figure out  exactly what the problem is. In winter try to regularly check a baby’s  temperature by not feeling their hands, but the back of their neck, which should  be an indicator of how hot or cold your baby is
