Blanket Rides

ages 1-4


Blanket, sheet, or towel

Activity Detail

Put your child in the middle of a blanket, sheet, or towel and slowly pull them around. They will experience a new way to move through space and see what's around them! Little ones may be more comfortable on their tummies, older ones can sit.

This is an excellent way to provide vestibular stimulation for your little one. As they develop their sense of balance they are also making connections between the hemispheres of their brain which improves learning. If you have another adult, you can also do some "hammocking" with your child. Each adult gathers the ends of one side of the blanket and swing your child gently side to side like they are swinging in a hammock. This is fun to do to a lullaby CD!

Fun, but not very original

This is a great activity for babies. It helps them develop balance and learn through exploring places they might not otherwise go.
