Go Get It

Go Get It (5)

There are so many games I’ve been waiting to play with Veronika with the caveat that she needed to be a crawler first. Well, now she’s a crawler and we’re playing!

Today, it was a simple game of pointing her towards her toys and saying, “Go get it!”

First, I rolled two balls away from her. She barely needed me to say the words before she was off.

I asked her next if she could get the purple one.

Of course the fact that she went for it was probably pure coincidence at this age, but it’s never too early to build the vocabulary for colors.

You can also turn it into a game for following instructions. Any toys on the “pillow fence” are irresistible to her, so she was off and crawling for them in a heartbeat.

“Can you put them in the bucket?” I asked, aping the movement for her.

She crawled happily over to the bucket and… ker-plunk!

You can even make the game into a “race” with mommy or daddy, which will have your little one giggling. Who would get to the toys first?

In sum, there are lots of variations you can play with this baby version of fetch, and your little one will love building those crawling muscles during all of them.
