  1. 1. STEM for Babies: Playtime and Toys Toy Type (examples will follow for those in bold) Concepts SCIENCE • Pop-up toys • Pound and roll toys • Sensory balls • Rattles/musical instruments • Balls/ramps • Sensory tiles • Stacking cups/ nesting blocks • Hand mirrors • Soft books/toys • Push/pull toys • Baby dolls • Cause and effect: Infants can understand simple causal relationships between actions and outcomes. For example, if I push the ball in here, it will go down the ramp. Children as young as twenty-four months can distinguish what actions activate a toy or “cause it to go.” This is shown in a study titled, Preschool children learn about causal structure from conditional interventions. Developmental Science, 10(3), 322-332. • Exploring the properties and characteristics of earth materials such as rocks, air, water, and soil • Observation of the properties and characteristics of living things; for babies, the focus would be on their own bodies TECHNOLOGY • Tweezers • Play mats • Pound and roll toys • Pop-up toys • Not limited to digital technology; for infants this can mean the use of simple tools and machines ENGINEERING • Building blocks • Magnatiles/ Picasso tiles • Wheeled toys (small and large) • Stacking cups/ nesting blocks • Tunnels • Balls • Sorting toys • Duplos • Megabloks • Bristle blocks • Solving problems/finding solutions is the basis of engineering • In order to solve problems, infants will use the Four Cs—communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity MATH • Bead mazes • Abacuses • Sorting toys • Magnatiles • Duplos • Shape puzzles • Stacking ring toys • Bristle blocks • Number sense and operations: for infants one-to-one correspondence and/or grouping like items (mama animal to baby animal) • Patterns: Beginning to understand the concept of patterning • Geometry: shapes and spatial relationships • Measurement: for babies, this is observing bigger and smaller, taller and shorter Annamarie Carlson acarlson@westervillelibrary.org Baby Time Boredom OLC Conference 2019 Sarah Simpson ssimpson@westervillelibrary.org
  2. 2. Baby Toy Collection: Before Purchasing General Considerations For Purchasing Baby Play Toys: 1. Noise. Does the toy make noise? Does it require batteries? If yes, these items are not the best for storytime play. 2. Hygiene. Can you clean the toy easily? What kind of disinfectants do you need? Popular baby-safe cleaning solutions are rubbing alcohol and distilled white vinegar. 3. Price. What is your budget? 4. Durability. Will this toy survive the wrath of the teething infant? Are there small parts that can be pried off? What happens if a child sits or stands on the toy? 5. Variety. Are the toys appropriate for infants and toddlers? There should be a variety of items to encourage gross motor, fine motor, and sensory exploration and development. 6. Storage. Toys will need bins or baskets for easy storage and distribution during playtime. This will need to be factored into your budget.
