This list is the ultimate collection of all the ideas I had collected from Pinterest and from kid activity blogs of fun and easy activities to do with babies aged 3 to 12 months.

These are all the ideas I used with my children when they were infants. From balloon kicking, to Easter argh water play all of these ideas are easily accessible for you and beneficial for infants.

I wanted to share them with you because sometimes we want to do more with our babies. And that’s great because these activities are great for developing our babies brains. These activities are great to do in between reading, talking, snuggling and singing to you mr baby.

I have organized the list according to age 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 9-12 months, however, many of the activities can be interchanged and older babies would definitely enjoy many of the ideas listed for younger babies.
