during the first 24 months, the intellectual development of a child gradually enables him to do the following;
* to integrate sensory information
* to form associations and expectations so that he/she can learn to make sense of the world.
* to develop object permanence.
* to learn how to think in an abstract way and how to make deductions.
* to develop concept of time.
PLAY SIMPLE HIDE AND SEEK GAMES DURING THE FIRST @ WEEKS OF THE MONTH. while sitting with baby, hide a toy two or three times beneath the same cover, for eg a box. each time let her remove the box to get the toy.
try the following experiment
find another possible cover, like a hat, and place it beside the box. this time, with the toy in full view, place the toy under the hat instead of the box.(she has learned to associate the image of the first cover with finding the yoy).
PLAY MORE COMPLICATED HIDE AND SEEK GAMES DURING THE LAST @ WEEKS OF THE MONTH to help your baby notice when you hide a toy.
-use 2 covers that look exactly alike, such as cloth diapers or 2 bowls
-place both bowls in front of baby, one more to her right hand side and the other to her left.
-hide a favorite toy under one of the bowls in full view of baby and ask her to find it.
- now hide it under the other bowl and ask her to find it.
