The Tummy Timer
We’ve got no doubt the midwife or paediatrician has told you the importance of tummy time. It strengthens their back, neck, arms and legs, and teaches them to pivot and reach (the precursors to crawling). The problem is, we’re yet to find a little one who simply adores being on their tummy.
Before long, they’re whining and whimpering, and that coffee you just made is left to go cold.
The ‘tummy timer’ deck will not only give you a moment with a hot cuppa, it will create a happy baby who loves playing on their tummy. The activities in this deck can also be done on their back, providing a great distraction during nappy changes!
What you need to know:
• 24 inspired play cards
• 1 instruction card
• A sliding draw box with easy-to-pull ribbon
Like all our cards, on the back you will find:
• Teacher talk: a quick list of developmental areas the activity focuses on
• Switch it up: ways to change the activity based on different needs
• Hot tips: little tricks to make it a success (think clean up ideas, safety advice, alternative resources to use)
HOW TO USE PLAY CARDS
Using PLAY CARDS® is as simple as, picking a card, collecting a few household items and getting playful!
Recommended for children aged between 0-6 months. All activities must be done under adult supervision.
