It's amazing how fast babies grow! At 6 months, your little one is already eager to explore. While feeding and sleeping are important, playtime offers a golden chance for a baby's development. Here's how to make the most of it:
Buy a bubble maker and see the joy in your baby's eyes. Bubbles aren't just fun; they help your baby focus and train their eyes.
A timeless favourite! Playing peekaboo not only brings laughter but teaches babies that things exist even if they can't see them. It’s a simple way to understand the concept of 'hide and seek'.
This activity combines fun with learning. Dangle colourful cloth pieces for your baby to kick. It boosts their awareness of their own body and helps them understand cause and effect.
Tummy time is more than just lying on the belly. Spread out some toys and join your baby on the floor. It’s great for their neck and back muscles.
Kids love copying! Show simple actions like clapping or blinking, and see them try it out. It sharpens their memory and shows them the power of imitation.
Baby's First Flight
Gently lift your baby, and pretend they’re flying. This fun activity feels like a mini adventure for them.
Touch and Feel Box
Place different textured materials like soft fur, a smooth plastic spoon, or crinkly paper in a box. Let your baby touch and explore. This enhances their sense of touch.
Show your baby their reflection in a mirror. Watch as they reach out and react to their own image. It’s a fun way for them to discover themselves.
Every day with your baby is a new adventure. While the tried and true activities like reading and singing are beneficial, mixing things up with these games ensures a fresh experience for them daily.
