Nature Tummy Time
CDA Competency Standard: II.4.4b
- Give the infant tummy time outside in the shade on a blanket spread over a flat grassy area. Place the child near the edge of the blanket so they can view and reach the grass and other natural items.
- Closely watch the child to make sure that they are safe and allow them to explore the sights, sounds, and textures of nature during tummy time.
- Observe and record the student’s gross-motor skills. Were they able to hold their head for longer periods of time? Did they move their head to look around?
