Play “comparison” games with your baby to improve his spatial thinking ability
With the development of the baby’s visual ability, he has a preliminary concept of the depth, black and white, and size of objects. We should guide the baby to let him learn to distinguish the size of objects. A trained baby will have a better understanding of graphics and space.
1. Comparing shoe size
First, you need to prepare two pairs of shoes of different sizes. (Eg mother and baby)
Then you take a pair of shoes and say to your baby, “Where are the big shoes?”
Or “Where are your baby shoes?”
If the baby doesn’t respond, help him put on big shoes and say, “It’s too big to fit.” Then help him put on small shoes.
You can also try his little shoes and say, “It’s too small for mommy to wear.”
Slowly, the baby will understand the concept of size!
2. Stacking toys
You can buy building block puzzles for your baby. When he plays, ask him: “Baby, which building block is the largest and which is the smallest?”
In the beginning, you hold his hand and help him find out the answer, then let him find the answer by himself. Your child will slowly grasp the concept of size!
