Follow That Light!

Cover a flashlight with a sheer colored scarf or piece of colored tissue paper, and secure with a rubber band. Shine the beam around the room. Let the light dance over a bookshelf or toys, and narrate as it travels up and down and across the ceiling. Depending on your baby’s age, this will help her learn things like tracking with her eyes or direction.
