Babies begin to grow and develop by playing from the womb. Playing good games can improve their skills at both the mental and physical level.
Since the physical and mental skill levels of each age are different, parents should find the game which is appropriate to their children’s age. Because games which are too easy will be boring for the kid, while more complex games can undermine the child’s self-confidence.

Usually, it is recommended to play games with your baby after they are six months old. This is because around six months baby starts sitting unsupported, crawls, moves and grasps the objects.

1 year Age

At the age of one year, babies begin to walk slowly and start talking monosyllabic words. They like to take something and throw it with their hands. That’s why they love to play with colourful toys that can make sounds.

During this period, you should try to find games that will improve your baby’s sense of touch, hearing and vision. Fabric books, softballs, xylophone, rattles and sound toys are great options for this.

Don’t be limited to toys. We are sure that your baby will enjoy playing games by hitting objects that will not harm them, such as soft plastic pots, pans and buckets.

You can also give the baby cups that you can fill with things like rice, lentils and support sensory integration. Of course, let’s not go without saying that you should never leave your baby alone with toys who are inclined to take everything in the mouth.
