Baby Stimulation:  Activities for your 6 month old

Baby Stimulation: Activities for your 6 month old

Sensory stimulation activities

  • Peek-a-boo, nursery rhymes and puppets are all games that will stimulate your baby’s senses.
  • Try experimenting with different textures using scarves and other fabrics you have around the house.
  • If your baby is crawling, designate a cupboard in the kitchen that’s safe for him to explore. You’ll be amazed to see the joy he can get out of a few pots and a wooden spoon.

Be sure to play it safe by keeping the rest of the cupboards secured.

Keep it interesting

  • Rotate his toys so that there are just a few in front of him at any given time
  • Make sure he gets a little quiet time on his own to experiment with each new thing and discover what's special about it.
  • Let him work a little bit to reach the toy, figure it out, and then share it with you, you'll give him a chance to experience the joy of doing it himself. That sense of mastery will fuel his desire to keep exploring.

Enjoy these special moments, watching your baby learn and discover is a fascinating time.

My little girl loves it when I spread her toys around the mat and she can wiggle her way around and explore each one!

My little one

My baby boy loves it when I talk in different tones, both very high pitch and low pitch---he thinks it is SO funny! He'll give us a good belly laugh!! He also loves when I play Peek-a-boo using his name or saying "where's Momma?". Big hard books are his favorite to look at and play with as well.

Baby boy loves to play with anything that makes noise. He loves crinkle books, rattles with different sounds, and our voices. It's so much fun to sit with him and talk back and forth and he loves it when I sing.
