Infants are primarily sensorimotor and therefore play is limited to sensory stimulation and reflexes.
Manipulative Play. Initial play in which infant plays with body (fingers/toes). Grasping reflexes are prevalent in play as infants observe interesting objects and inspect thru grasping, oral exploration, & banging.
Later part of infancy, infants develop greater ability to sit up and take in more stimuli. Also, greater control over motor skills (can not move hands across body and greater hand/eye coordination).
