Infants

ENTERTAINING INFANTS

Infants have short attention spans and are frequently interested in a toy or activity for only a few minutes at a time. Be patient with infants. Do not expect more than they are capable of.

6 Months to 1 Year

  • Play games where infant drops object and you pick it up. Make sure object is not breakable.
  • Play nursery games like Peek-a-Boo and Patty-Cake.
  • Play Hide-and-Seek with objects.
  • Walk around the house looking at and naming things.
  • Roll a ball to infant.
  • Take stroller ride if weather is nice.
