Development of fine motor skills involves planning and motor speed, visual tracking, reaching, object manipulation and grasping. From about 6 months, babies will begin to demonstrate these fine motor skills. The Sassy Bumpy Ball has been designed to help baby with all of the developmental skills.
Development of gross motor skills include movement of the limbs and torso. Physical coordination such as sitting on own, whole body movement including locomotion and coordination, balance and motor planning are all involved in development of gross motor skills.
Sit on the floor with baby across from you, it is fun to extend your legs and have baby extend legs to touch your feet together. Push the Sassy Bumpy Ball to baby in a pretend roll. Encourage baby to reach and grasp the ball and push it back.
Encourage baby to grasp the bumps and "toss" the ball to you. The bright colors are designed to engage baby's developing sense of vision as motor skills are emerging.
