Your Child is quite a drummer! Your little one can now bang objects together — a sign of well-developed eye-hand coordination and fine motor skill.
One of the things children seem to love the most is banging objects together. As ordinary or, sometimes, annoying as it may seem to parents, it is a sign that the little one’s eye-hand coordination and motor control have now developed enough. The sound of the object coming together often fascinates babies and the act of hitting two things together lays the foundation for learning how to use tools.
How to support this development
Not enjoying the sound of the kitchen tool drumming session? You may provide toys that mimic a musical instrument or a toy tool bench for Your Child to play with so as to reduce the noise while finetuning this development.
Note: All children develop differently and at their own pace. For children born preterm, the referred timeframe for achieving the various developmental milestones might be incorrect.
Source: The information and graphs about when children reach specific milestones are taken from various sources, including the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Denver Developmental Screening Test, and the State Institute of Early Childhood Research, Germany (IFP).
