Kicking develops motor skills and it is something babies love to do and can do easily! Make this interactive between you and your baby by holding up a rattle, bells, chimes, or something that will make noise when he kicks it.
Encourage him with lots of smiles and a “you kicked it!” every time he kicks the rattle or other noise maker.
Your baby’s brain will be firing away as he connects the cause and effect of his kicking an object and making a sound; he will also come to understand the cause and effect of the kicking and your smiles. But the fun the two of you are having together is the most important thing!
