Baby Play Ideas - Activities for 6 -12 month olds 

Entertaining a baby all day long is a lot harder than it sounds. I remember feeling like the days were soooo long. While it's easy to spend a lot on baby toys, you really don't need to. It's normally the simple items that will keep your baby happy and entertained. I've put together some of our favorite posts on baby play ideas that should keep you and your baby busy! These activities are aimed at 6-12 month olds. If you have an older child you might like our activities for one year old page.

Sensory play is great for the baby age range as well. From 6 months old babies are loving exploring and learning about their environment and sensory play is a great way to do this. You can find some fun baby sensory play ideas HERE.

Singing is a great baby activity and they love the repetitiveness of the songs and the actions. At this age, they might not be able to join in the actions but they love watching you do them. You'll be amazed how much they take in.  If you're struggling for nursery rhyme ideas this post will help (there's even videos of the actions in case you need a quick refresher!). See the action nursery rhymes HERE.
