Impressive Tips & Activities For Baby And Toddlers Development

Baby activities and their milestones

Having hard times finding activities for your baby? It’s not about just spending time with the child and playing whatever games. We need to use this play time for something in their advantage. They learn very quickly and if we use the appropriate games for their age, it contributes to their normal development, both physical and mental.

Children at the age of 6 to 9 months go through very important milestones in their development and they know to changing activities very fast. To help achieve these milestones normally and on time by having lots of fun and feeling loved, we need to incorporate appropriate games. Here are some of them:

Game and activities

-Tug of war – we need one blanket for this game. We tug the blanket back and forth between us and the child. This is important for the baby’s upper body strength.

-Hide and seek – we need one toy that makes noise. We hide that toy and ask the baby to look for it. Celebrate when the baby finds it.

-Peek a boo – we hide behind the baby and ask them “where is a mommy?” Celebrate again when he turns around to find you.

-Scrunchy scarf – we put the scarf or other fabric in a paper towel tube and encourage the baby to pull it out.

-Tower tumble – this is important for the cause and effect learning. We stack blocks together and encourage the baby to knock them down.

-Sponge – while taking a bath, take several sponges and let him squeeze out the water from them. This is also important for the cause and effect.

-Hats off – put the baby in front of a mirror and take different types of hates. Changing them will be interesting for him and he will develop self-recognition concept.
