8 brain-boosting activities -- fun for all ages!
Stack pillows to make mini-mountains, create a tunnel out of blankets and couch cushions, then urge your crawler to scramble over and under to get to you on the other side of the room.
TAKE-AWAY LESSON: Persistence. With enough motivation -- a hug from you at the finish line -- he'll plow through until the end. Plus, all that pillow-scaling and blanket-diving strengthens the large motor skills your baby will need to walk.
