So, as our daughter's now three months old, when I pick up new play time activities or ideas, I'll post them on this blog to hopefully inspire others. I'd also love to hear your ideas too! Please leave a comment or link to your blog so we can share.
Idea one: brightly coloured fabric play
- Set up time: a couple of minutes
- Play time: between five and 10 minutes
- Cost: free if you have the fabric
- Equipment required: lightweight silk/cotton/polyester scarves or fabric that contain different colours
For an older baby who's sitting up, you can also practice waving the fabric like a flag and rolling it up to create patterns on the floor.
I've done this with our daughter before, and will post a pic in the next couple of days to show her enjoying it.
