Problem is, it's so cold and windy in March, and we've both been sick. Would normally go for a stroll when we get itchy, but being so housebound we are rotating between the Entertainer (baby walker), the Tippee toe Bouncer (doorway bouncer), reading books/singing, Peekaboo/pattycade, knocking down blocks and cubes, and the occasional Baby Mozart video (trying to limit). Just wondering if there's a brilliant game or toy that we could be trying. DS has been sitting up beautifully since 6 months, but not crawling, and prob. will not be for a while. Have had to cancel play dates/baby classes due to his cold.
That sounds like loads. Pulling things out of stuff got my dd's vote (still does) maybe a paper bag with rattles and things, pot and wooden spoon.
I'm a bit stumped for extra ideas, you've covered all that i'd do.
I sit DD in front of the kitchen cupboard which contains all the plastic plates/bowls/cups for the kids and she enjoys emptying it. Sometimes blow bubbles in the kitchen and she follows them with her eyes and tries to catch them sometimes.
TBH my main entertainment device is her big brother.
Also unless his cold is really bad I would wrap him up well and take him for a quick stroll. And once he gets better try him on a swing - DD loves them!
i know what you mean about being housebound due to weather and colds... sounds like you've got all the same stuff we have for our DS... i think the early learning centre seem to have a good range of toys: www.elc.co.uk
someone told me that you can get a mobile phone toy for babies which i think sounds great as they are always fascinated by them!
Also strip baby down to nappy, put a towel down on kitchen floor and put an inch of water in washing bowl along with safe kitchen items (seive, plastic spoon, measuring jug etc). Oh and supervise closely of course!
