Mommy and baby activities together.

Sekarang ni adik Aisyah dah nak masuk 6 bulan. Jadi skrg ni mama mula duk mencari2 idea aktiviti yg dpt mama buat dgn adik kat rumah ni. Masa duk cari2 kat internet tadi, mama terjumpa beberapa idea ni. Aktiviti yg simple dan menarik utk anak kecil. 
Jom mama kongsikan dgn semua apa yg mama jumpa ni.

  • Nature Walks – take your baby out in their pram or in baby carrier each day. Talk to them about what you see.
  • Chatting – As you peel potatoes, as you do your housework or go about your day, chat to your little one all the time. A moms voice is soothing and all the time you are chatting you are developing neural pathways in your baby’s brain.
  • Balls – Once your baby is sitting you can buy a variety of different sized balls (none small enough to fit into their mouth!) and roll balls back and forth to one another.
  • Board books – Board books are fantastic as they do not tear and can stand a fair amount of “mouthing” by babies. Choose ones with clear open pictures.
  • Peek-a-boo games – Using hands, a handkerchief or a blanket, play peek-a-boo with your baby.
  • Turning lights on and off – This activity, which may seem very simple, was of great fascination to all my babies and was a lifesaver when I needed to distract a tired or hungry baby for a few minutes. The sentences: “Light on” and “light off” also became one of our babies first ones.
  • Mirror games – Safety mirrors are wonderful to have in your baby’s toy box but you can also use proper mirrors when you are able to supervise the play. Go through your baby’s facial features with them while you hold a mirror for them to look into.
  • Hiding toys – Babies love to get little surprises. Take their favourite toy and hide it under a handkerchief. Ask them the question: “Where is [Pooh Bear]?” And then uncover the toy with a flourish. Repeat often and soon they will be copying you!
  • Peep tube – Use and old Pringles chip or similar container and peep through the tube at your baby. You can ask them the question: “Where is [Sarah]?” a few times over until you make eye contact.
  • Round and round the garden like a teddy bear – Action songs and rhymes are great fun. This is one of our favourites. After doing this a few times over your baby should ask you for it with their index finger on their own hand.
  • Cycling legs – When changing your baby’s nappy or any other time you have a moment when they are lying on their backs, gently take their feet and make cycling motions with their legs. Do not force them if they resist.
  • Bouncing ball – We had a large physio ball (some use them for Pilates) that we used to roll and bounce our babies on. For rolling place them tummy down and hold their feet firmly. Roll them forward making sure their arms are extended in front of them. This develops their parachute reflex which they will need when they begin to walk.
  • Crawling obstacle course – stack up piles of pillows or make a box tunnel for them to crawl through and over.
  • Row row row your boat – with your sitting babe place them directly in front of you. Hold their hands and gently ease them forward and back singing this favourite childhood song.
  • Teaching body part names – Teach your baby their body part names. Get them to first identify them with repetition. Then ask them where they limb is, follow this with asking them to find your [nose-hand-foot] etc.
  • Naming objects – As you walk around your house teach your baby the names of objects.
  • Family photo book – Take clear photos of all in your family that your baby has regular contact with. Stick them onto stiff card and bind together. Flip through this book with your baby to teach them family members names.

Puteri2 comel kesayangan papa & mama :)
