At 4 months, your baby is fascinated by his feet or your glasses, golden toys! At 3 years old, here she is, princess, knight, soaring for hours of happiness. To develop harmoniously, your child needs to play. And to discover at each age a way to explore the world. Here, age by age, the games that will please your apprentice player.

  • "Play is fundamental for the child, he just learns to live," says Alain Guy, a psychoanalyst and professor of education, "Of course, every child is progressing at his own pace." Yet at least three major Periods emerge from this fun discovery of the world.

From birth to 9 months

All his senses are 100% awake to play

He wriggles his feet, pulls his hair

  • From the first months, the most beautiful toy of your baby is the body: his and yours. He discovers his hands, his feet. They are a source of interest and a form of play.
  • As long as he does not move, he is fascinated by what moves and sounds. Well installed on the back, he sees his hands pass in front of him. Then, comfortably in your arms, he grabs your hair. Around 2-3 months, he will watch his feet and even try to catch them! "It's not easy to find out about his surroundings and about himself," says Agnès Lévine, a psychopedagogue and a day-nursery trainer, "all this sensory information will give her a user's guide, a beginning of knowledge and intelligence. "At this age, all his senses are awake! An investment that requires a lot of energy. You can of course stimulate it, but you will realize that fatigue sets in quickly: be attentive to its fleeting glances.
  • Because new connections between neurons are created, he needs a time of rest ... to "digest". "When a baby sleeps, he can see bits of images of what he has just experienced," continues Agnès Lévine, as if he "was printing." Living the same situation next time, he can anticipate: he will know that such movement causes such noise, for example. "

He catches, manipulates, stacks ... that progress

  • Around 4 months, your baby tries to grab objects. From this stage, his progress will be spectacular, especially when he will be seated. His freedom of action is growing. Now you see him pass his rattle from one hand to another. He puts it down, the coward, takes it back. Surrounded by objects, he amuses himself by grasping, posing, scattering, gathering, and examining every detail. With ten nesting cubes, he can spend hours exploring endless possibilities! He becomes master of his game and must be able to use it according to his desire. Spread, mix, arrange items and watch. This is the start of his intelligence and the discovery of the principle of cause and effect. "The child acts on things, he observes, memorizes and links actions, says Agnès Levin.The sensorimotor intelligence is the first stage of intelligence and this action begins with the manipulation of objects."
  • Your baby finds the solution to the problems he is facing. Objects are scattered? In this appearance of disorder, he tries to understand how the objects work together. That's why we have to leave them as they are. "We should not put too much order and meaning," says the psychopedagogue, a little as if we suddenly changed the grid of our crosswords!
