Here It Comes!
Use yarn or stiff netting to make large, lightweight pompom balls. Invite the infant to explore the balls either lying on her back or sitting up. Kneeling close, hold a ball and tell her you are going to drop it. As you do, ever so gently, say, "Here it comes!" Encourage the baby, if she wants, to pick up the ball and explore it. Repeat the activity, each time telling the infant what you are going to do, so she can begin to anticipate the action.
