Cause-and-effect is big at ten months, and this simple game is sure to delight!
I sat down with Veronika in front of an empty plastic bin. Making sure she was watching, I tossed in a bean bag and said, “Boom!”
Well she sure thought that was funny!
I repeated with a ball, “Boom!” She immediately began mimicking the word. “Boo boo boo!”
Now it was her turn; I handed her a ball which she placed in rather than dropped into the bucket, but she had the idea!
For some extra fun, I sprinkled flour in the bottom of the bin.
The bean bags and balls made just enough of an impact for a light dusting to fly up when items landed, further enhancing the notions of cause and effect.
And it was so fun that big brother wanted in on the action!
