Gifts for 1-year olds
First steps and other coordinated movements
Taking steps is practiced over and over again. The child has taken a few steps by itself or with the help of somebody’s hand and can probably stand alone for a few seconds. Hand movements are increasingly coordinated, enabling children to throw things. This is the time when the little ones start to explore things with their hands and not only their mouth. They also increase targeted movements such as placing smaller cups into larger cups.
