6. Puppet plays

Whose little kid doesn't like to play dolls? Every babies must have at least 1 doll at home. Yups, usually parents use it to practice their communication skills.

Dolls are moved followed by voices from Daddy and Mommy, as if the doll itself is speaking. From this activity children learns to recognize sounds. Well, after a bit later, try to let him direct the puppet show himself.

Use the doll at home, hold one for you and give one more for the little one. Invite children to talk through dolls, after a while they will understand and try to play alone.

Build learning kids by let them play with building blocks

Building with blocks provides one of the most valuable learning experiences available for young children. Block play stimulates learning in all domains of development, intellectual, physical, and social-emotional and language, most importantly allow a child to free imagination.

There are several types of baby blocks in the market today. How do I know which kind of blocks play is suitable for my kids? We do believe that not all blocks will work for all age groups. There is a natural progression of blocks play and introducing infants and toddlers to block play is invaluable.

Blocks play for 3 to 12 months old

When babies are first introduced to blocks, they learn how to hold them, how to feel, they attract by blocks’ eye-catchy color, that is great for tiny hands that are just learning to maneuver things. Then start to carry them around. They will experiment with how blocks may sound when they fall, or when they bang them together. Through block play a young child’s expressive and receptive language is being expanded by learning words.
