Baby Play Activities

I love baby play activities. To be honest, I’m a bit sad that I never did any with E when she was a baby. Not that I think she missed out on anything but those activities are just so fun!

It wasn’t until E was two years old that I started doing activities with her. Both she and I have benefited so much from them, and it was only natural to start doing simple activities with N when he was only about four months old.

By the time he was about seven months old, he became very interested in the activities E and I do together. Unfortunately, it’s usually not safe for him to join in, so I make sure to give him his own sensory experiences by simplifying and just giving him time to explore.

Please note that when I mention at what age my son did these activities, it only means that they were appropriate for HIM at this age! Only you can decide if an activity is appropriate for your children, no matter their age!
