There is so much you can do with highchair games at the age of about six months. Babies are learning to pick up food, about the cause-and-effect of things being hidden, and all about different taste sensations. This game plays on all three!
Select a food your child likes (or one that’s new and exciting!) and have a napkin or cloth handy. I let Veronika see a few carrots on the tray…
…but then covered them over.
It took her little hands a few moments, but soon the scarf was lifted; probably more to play with than to find the food, but surprise! Carrot sticks.
Then I pulled out one of her favorite Baby Led Weaning foods: mini rice cakes.
I showed her the cakes, but then hid them away.
She eagerly grabbed at the scarf.
Ha, got them mommy! Then of course baby gets to enjoy the snack as a reward.
