We finally figured out a way to motivate Daniel into getting more independent and walking around in his Pony walker. Well at least for a few days we have!!
Hide and Go Seek with Elmo!
We count to 10 and look the other way while the other one of us goes to help Elmo hide!
It is so cute to watch him scan the room(s) and then when he finds Elmo he gives off a little squeal and off he goes to "get" him. Then we start all over again!
This does a few things that I'm glad about.
1) He can scan and seek out things (does good for his eyes)
2) He gets the concept of "hiding"
3) It gets him to move independently to the object, and at a fast pace!
4) It makes him laugh and he is having fun like a "typical" child!
