Share on Pinterest

From about 6 months old you can start encouraging play with your baby. Even though babies are already naturally curious and playful!

There are many lovely toys on the market for this age I can recommend 3 steady favorites from my kids. Firstly board books, secondly Sophie the giraffe for teething and thirdly this activity ball.

Craft sticks in duplo blocks keep little ones busy or she might prefer to stick them in a container like this pick up sticks game.

Exploring new craft materials such as pipe cleaners can bring many giggles.

Home made paint is another must to try, it is non toxic so tasting is just fine!

Of course you could also contain the paint in a bag and try it this way. A box with balls works just as well! hehe

Stack blocks or empty yogurt bottles to create a knock down activity, this never fails for giggles.

My little one loved exploring the toy box at this age too. I love the treasure box idea from The Imagination tree.

  1. This is a fantastic resource with many ideas I had not seen before. The craft sticks and Duplos idea is so inventive. I am excited to try these as the twins get a little older. Thanks, Nicolette, for including my list of infant activities as well!
