During their first half-year of life, babies begin to become aware of their body and develop all their senses, but for this, it is important to enhance each of their abilities. With these simple games to do with children from 0 to 6 months, families will also detect information about the progress of their abilities, such as visual acuity, how they perceive sounds, or the movements of their limbs.
However, being so small, remember that all the activities that are done with them must be supervised by an adult .
1. Ball games
Balls made with different textures and materials can become a good tool to play with your baby. Take advantage when he is face down and roll a ball down his back so that he becomes aware of his body. You can also roll the ball along her tummy. Another option is to use a larger one to place the child on it. Rock him slowly to see his reaction as he feels how he is in contact with the ball.
2. Activities with water
Babies love to play with water, so we propose a very cool idea. You simply need a container in which to put a few milliliters of liquid and an object, such as a toy animal or a ball, that can easily move around the tray. This way you will start to splash and see how it splashes every time you move your hands. It is not uncommon for him to try to drink or to try to push other parts of his body such as his belly or legs. It is definitely one of the most fun games to do with children from 0 to 6 months (especially on hot days).
3. Playful feet
Babies also use their feet to discover objects around them. Take advantage of their continuous kicks to do stimulating games and sensory activities. For example, you can place a piece of tissue paper on the edge of the bed or on a wall so that the child, lying on his back, feels this texture. Also, try other types of rough fabrics or aluminum foil for noise.
4. With helium balloons
This is one of the simplest and most entertaining games to do with children from 0 to 6 months. All you need is a helium balloon and a small paper string to tie it (loosely and carefully) to their wrists and legs. With this activity, the baby will follow the movement of the object and you will enhance its visual response. In addition, little by little, he will learn the relationship between his hustle and bustle and those of the balloons. Try doing the same, but in this case, sit it down and use a normal balloon. In this way, he will give small kicks that will make the balloon move away and return to him thanks to the tape.
5. The plane
As he gains strength in his neck and head, you can start to entertain him with games like “the plane.” For this, you only need to place him on your feet to raise and lower the child or balance him. Your little one will love the feeling of being suspended in the air while feeling the security of having you around.
