This play idea is brought to you by Knoala – Raise Happier Kids. Knoala is a free app that offers activities for parents to enjoy with infants to preschoolers.
Every parent dreams of the days when their little one takes their first steps. Maybe they even find themselves asking “When do babies start walking?” Its that bittersweet moment in every parents life when their baby is no longer a baby any more, but it means their baby is developing and reaching important milestones. Super B (9 months) is always on the go and is starting to want to get around on her own to keep up with her 2 older brothers, which is why I was so excited when I recently discovered the free Knoala app for our Ipad.
Knoala has tons of simple and quick activity prompts for parents that require little to no set up. It is perfect for adding fun activities with Super B into our day without a lot of planning.
We recently tested their engaging “Up On My Feet” activity to encourage Super B to take those first few steps before she starts walking.
After a little encouragement from me and Papa Bear, Super B was up on her feet. She was so proud to be standing. This has become such a popular activity in our house, that we have to do it more than once a day. Before long, I know she will be taking that our baby will start walking without Papa’s hands supporting her. But for now, we will cherish the time we get to spend bonding with her as she develops her motor skills and her confidence.
