Put Your Baby Ahead of the Curve with Fun Learning Games

Put Your Baby Ahead of the Curve with Fun Learning Games

Play is one of the most powerful way babies learn—in fact, when you play with your baby you're helping her acquire knowledge and important skills. And it doesn't need to be complicated! Simple games are a great way to bond and promote healthy development throughout infancy and toddlerhood. Here are a few fun games you can play with your little one.

Peek-a-Boo

Around six months of age, babies begin to learn the concept of object permanence. For instance, when you leave the room, they know that you still exist somewhere (just not right in front of them at this point in time). Peek-a-boo is best for babies between 4 to 6 months old. You don’t just have to play with your hands and face, either! You can cover their toys with a blanket and whisk it away, and allow them to pull the cloth off of objects as well.

Water Play

When your baby is able to sit up without assistance, introduce them to water play by using bath toys like rubber duckies, funnels and water wheels. Sensory exploration is a crucial part of infant development, and water play gives babies a chance to experience new textures and improves their concentration.

Remember to never leave your baby unattended with any amount of water, no matter how little.

Flash Cards

When they’re around 7-months-old, your baby will start making sounds using concrete syllables and learning how to recognize certain words. Many games for babies include colorful flashcards with bright illustrations, and can be a great way to help them make stronger associations. Run through a deck once or twice a day, and make sure that you point out the real-life equivalents of the words they learn like apple, ball and car!

Rhyming

The best games for babies are easy and can be done anywhere! Rhyming is a great way to make your baby laugh and help improve their language acquisition. Babies like repetitive sounds, which is why nursery rhymes are still so popular today!

Exploring Together Helps Your Baby Grow

Everyday objects can be transformed into fascinating playthings by a curious baby. Their interest in the world around them expands every day, and you can have fun with everything from a plastic water bottle to a toilet paper roll.

Let your own imagination expand as your baby grows, and embrace all of the opportunities that come your way to talk, count, dance, and be silly!
