Do you find yourself trying to encourage a budding crawler these days? Then make the temptation irresistible with a tunnel!
Right now, eight-month-old Veronika loves leaning forward to get to her toys, and my hope was that creating a tunnel archway would encourage her into a true first crawl. First, I tried to entice her with an open box.
Hmm, the box looked interesting, and got lots of smiles.
But she didn’t actually try to crawl through it.
Next up was a mommy tunnel! This definitely got her attention.
She played with my feet at first, but then made moves to go through the archway. Still, she gave up after a few tries reaching for a toy on the other side.
This is also a great game for getting siblings involved, who may want to make a leg tunnel, or perhaps do a backbend and see if baby goes through that way! We’re hoping to have a true crawler soon!
