Crawling Around Together

8-12 Months

FromInfant-Toddler Social Studies,  Carla B. Goble

What to have Sturdy box or simple tent

What to do As infants begin to crawl, place a sturdy box or make a simple tent that they can crawl into. Play the going away and coming back game as they crawl into the space and cannot be seen. Sit near and describe what they are doing. Model for two infants how to crawl into the box or tent and sit together. Sit near and describe what’s happening using words such as in, out, and under. Use words such as together and sitting close. Call each infant by name.

Why To promote active play with another infant. To promote the development of social skills.
