Baby Games Overview

Games are not only fun, but can also be very educational for babies.  This curriculum would just not be complete without the addition of games.  They are a great way to bond with your baby.  Spend time each day playing games.  I have only listed one game idea for each lesson, but there are many more games you can play.  Look for the suggested books below to find more great games to share with your baby.  Have fun!!!
