Milestones

Using art and imagination

You might notice that:

  • I can copy actions, like clapping or waving, that I see a grown up doing.
  • I can show you that I like music and songs by patting the floor with my hands, opening and closing my hands or wriggling my body and legs.
  • I can explore the marks I make with a chunky pen or crayons, or use my hands in bubbles, mud or paint.
  • I can explore what happens when I use my hands to pull, squash and squeeze dough.

Development clues:

  • Babies need to play with lots of different things to find out what they can do with them.
  • Babies need to develop relationships with grown ups.
  • Babies need to hear words and learn to use them.

How you can help me learn:

  • Let me use my hands and feet to find out what marks I can make with paint or to make bubbles pop.
  • Make sock puppets move to music or when you sing to me.
  • I need to play with lots of different things to find out what I can do with them, such as scarves, boxes, rattles or safe mirrors.
