Playing with socks can be a fun way to help develop baby’s motor skills, and playing with baby’s hair, like styling it in fun ways, can help develop baby’s sensory skills and prepare them for their first haircut. All our games are developed with and approved by expert pediatric physical and occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists.
These activities are designed to help your toddler as they move towards their 13-18 month milestones. The games are not limited to this specific week. You can keep playing these games over the next several weeks as long as you and your child continue to have fun. If you are concerned that your child isn’t meeting their milestones, trust your instincts and talk to your healthcare professional.

Games to Play:
• Sock Fun: Have baby push plastic eggs or balls through a sock with a hole cut out at the toe. This helps baby use fingers to build fine motor skills.
• Salon Ready: Run your fingers through baby’s hair, styling it in fun ways, or use a comb to brush their hair. This can be a great activity during bath time, and helps develop their sensory skills. It’s also great practice before baby’s first haircut!
