The activities below are introduced to children who are really starting to sit on their own. Once children can sit, they can manipulate things using two hands together which allows for a wider range of activities. Now, children’s visual and tactile systems come together and they are able to begin to develop hand-eye coordination. At this age, children’s fine motor skills begin to develop and they progress from holding objects with a whole hand grasp to a thumb and finger grasp (which will eventually lead to a true pincer grasp). Additionally, the concept of object permanence begins to develop, when the child begins to realize that objects continue to exist when they are not visible.
