One of the most classic and timeless games to play with babies is peek-a-boo. It’s a great way to start building their object permanence skills while also getting some laughs. To play, simply hide your face behind your hands and then pop back out and say “peek-a-boo!” You can also use a blanket or a piece of clothing to cover your face if you want to make it more challenging for them.
Reading together is not only a great way to bond with your baby, but it’s also an important part of their development. Reading helps to expand their vocabulary and introduces them to new concepts. It’s never too early to start reading with your baby, so don’t be afraid to break out the baby books!
Play with toys
Babies love to play with toys! It’s a great way for them to explore their senses and learn about the world around them. There are all sorts of toys designed specifically for babies, so take some time to explore what’s available. Some of our favorites include rattles, soft blocks, and activity mats.
Go for a walk
Getting some fresh air is always a good idea, and it’s especially beneficial for babies. Walking helps to stimulate their senses and can even help them sleep better at night. If you don’t have a stroller, no problem! Baby wearing is a great option for walks with young babies.
Singing songs is another great way to bond with your baby while also stimulating their mind. Babies love the sound of their parents’ voices, so don’t be afraid to belt out those nursery rhymes! If you’re not sure where to start, there are plenty of resources online that can help you find songs that are appropriate for babies.
Dancing is another fun activity that babies love! It helps them develop their gross motor skills and gets them moving their bodies in new ways. Plus, it’s just plain fun! Put on some music that you both enjoy and let loose!
