Around 5 months, your baby reaches her whole arm towards something she wants. Eventually she’ll grab, and perhaps switch something from hand-to hand. Also around this time, her eyes uncross and her vision improves as she focuses and scans slowly moving objects. These two developing skills come together when your baby watches you blow bubbles, making it a perfect exercise for developing eye-hand coordination.
Blow bubbles. When you do, she watches each slowly moving bubble and improves her visual tracking and skills. By the time she’s ready to reach up a finger to pop a sudsy circle, you’ll know her eyes and hands are working together. Plus it’s relaxing, like watching curtains blow in the window. Add a little music and this playful time becomes a soothing ritual as your baby grows.
