Activities for a 6 month old
Created by Updated on Dec 24, 2014
Hi all, My child has just become 6 months old. He can sit without support, and grasp things, point etc. I was wondering what sort of toys should I get him that will help him develop.

Hi Shipra ! Around 6 months of age child has learnt to sit without support and is ready to leap to next stage in a few months time which is crawling . It is advisable to look for toys which could improve child's visual and motor skills such as colorfull clothes balls , stacking blocks , rings, toys which makes light and sound on pressing buttons , reading books with pictures, showing real objects as shown in the book which will help them learn things actually exist, squeezy toys which will make sound on pressing. U can also make use of materials easily available at home. For example stacking of unbreakable cups or bowls , playing with spoons and bowls, playing with a small ball of dough, soft toys, making rattles by putting Dals in a small box which can be used later. PuttING things in and out of a basket . Hope this helps!

Hi Shipra, one very effective idea i tried was with food colours. Mix food colours in water and stick large chart paper sheets on the floor and let the little one have fun. It is a very cathartic experience for them but without risk of harm. be prepared for mess though.
