8 Activites To Do With A 10 Month Old

Entertaining Darcy was always something I worried about. I often wondered if I was boring her but it turns out she is quite happy to play on her own with her toys as well as happy for me to join in too. Today I thought I'd tell you a few activities we like to do together.

  • Make a den. We often put a blanket or sheet over her bouncer which also has a space underneath to sit under, small enough really just for Darcy but mummy likes to squeeze in to, and she really enjoys this.
  • Saucepan and a wooden spoon. It's the simple things! Just getting a saucepan out of the cupboard turning it upside down and giving her a wooden spoon would keep her happy for while. In fact anything that makes a noise keeps Darcy happy!
  • Picnic in the garden/park. Now that the weather is changing and looking perkier, we like to lay a towel on the grass in the garden and sit out with a few toys. Perhaps even a picnic. Lovely and cheap!
  • Toys/Repetitive Stacking. Most toys are educational but one we particularly focus on at the moment is repetitive stacking her blocks. I'll stack them up, she'll knock them down but she is beginning to learn now to stack them herself.
  • Bubbles. This one we've recently done for the first time, blowing bubbles is what I do and Darcy tries to catch them or just giggles .
  • Reading. Another simple one, yes I know she can't read yet, but she very much enjoys looking and pointing at the pictures.
  • Peekaboo. Now that Darcy is old enough she is able to pull a blanket to her face and play it with me instead. Love that.
  • The Chase Game. Literally started playing this 2 days ago. I say I'm. 'Coming. To. Get. YOOOOOU!!!!' She screeches with giggles and crawls super fast. Then I'll crawl away from her and she'll crawl and get me. One of our favourites at the moment.
What do you like to do with your little ones? 
Thanks for reading.
