Balloon Swat for Babies

Babies and balloons are always such a fun combination - but did you know this simple toy is also great for visual tracking and spatial awareness?

This simple activity is one that can grow with your little one. Encourage your baby to interact with the balloon by hitting at it, and watching it move.Talk to your baby about its colour and how it's moving - "Oh look at the balloon, it's falling down again. It's a red balloon".  

Once your child is more mobile and hand-eye coordination increases, you can play the favourite 'Don't let the balloon touch the ground' game - a great game to further develop hand-eye coordination and balance.
