Manipulating Objects at Midline

Grasping and manipulating provide the basis for exploration and learning.

  • Use pull-apart toys (e.g., Mr. Potato Head, interlocking blocks, pop beads, objects to bang together).
  • Provide finger foods of various sizes (e.g., small crackers, soft cheese).
  • Use items with unusual textures (e.g., squeeze toys, sticky tape, paper, stuffed animals, etc.).
  • Thread string through the center holes of beads.
