Sitting and crawling stage
Child aged 5-12 months has experienced the most significant developmental milestones in his life. In these short months, the child has not only learned to stand up, sit, crawl, stand, and even walk such gross motor development. He also begins to grasp and release with the whole hand, two or three fingers grasping, and other fine motor developments. During this time, the child also started the so-called "Self-weaning" and slowly tried various food in various forms. At the same time, he begins to interact with people around them, such as smiling and waving. Some child even starts to speak a few words.
Because each child's developmental milestones happen at different paces, the various required items, and prepared environments introduced here are designed for the development stage rather than the child's specific age month.
• Wooden cylinder with bell
• All kinds of balls of different sizes and materials
• Cars with sliding wheels
The above three items can stimulate and promote the child's gross motor movements and encourage them to crawl more autonomously.
• Wooden egg ball cup
• Wooden box with tray and ball
• Wooden ring on stable base (the ring should be broad at this stage, easy to grasp and put in, use one ring first)
The wooden egg ball cup, a box with tray and ball, and ring on the stable base can train the child's hand-eye coordination and purposeful full-hand and four-fingers grasping and releasing ability. The wooden box with tray and ball also helps the child to understand the concept of "object permanence."
The child finds himself start to climb up and down independently, which encourages the child's gross motor development. Every action the child makes is under his control, and at the same time, he has an inner motivation to challenge himself. He learns to trust his bodies, gain confidence and skills at a pace that suits him, and eventually learns to be safe and agile on climbing up and down the stairs. The primary caregiver's main task for the child is not to stop it, but to ensure the child's safety.
