Let's Play! My Photo Album
Appropriate for: 6 months to 1 year
Skills developed: Pattern recognition, fine motor
What you'll need: A small photo album – the type where the photos slide into clear plastic pocket
Give the album to your baby and tell him it's his very own. Sit with him and show him the photos. Since his pincer grasp (with forefinger and thumb) is starting to develop, he’ll soon learn to grab the pages, and as he gets older he'll start to really look at the pictures and point at them.
He may react to familiar faces with excitement, or he might just be mesmerized by the parade of colorful images. Either way, store the album on his bookshelf or in his toy box, for later viewing together. It'll quickly become a favorite.
Let's Play! Block That Move
Appropriate for: 6 months to 1 year
Skills developed: Hand-eye coordination
What you'll need: Stacking blocks
Seat your baby on your lap, facing outward. Using a set of wooden or plastic blocks – ideally set upon a bare wooden or tile floor, for acoustic effect – build a tall tower. Don't worry too much about stability, because your baby is just going to knock it down.
Let him swat at the structure, reach for lower blocks, or otherwise demolish your creation. He'll not only enjoy watching the blocks fall, but if they're set on anything but carpet, he'll also relish hearing them crash. Keep stacking them and letting him knock them down; he'll just get better and better at it, and you'll get faster and faster at the construction!
Let's Play! Jack-in-the-Can
Appropriate for: 6 to 10 months
Skills developed: Understanding of object permanence
What you'll need: A coffee can, yogurt carton, or large paper cup; a chopstick, pencil, or ruler; a small colorful toy (a finger puppet works best); some tape or glue
Punch a hole in the bottom of the container. Insert a chopstick, pencil, or ruler (even a stick from your garden will do) through the hole, then glue or tape to the tip a small stuffed animal or plastic figure. Even better, use a finger puppet (just slip it over the end of the stick and secure it with a bit of tape).
Now you have a hand-operated pop-up toy: Pull the stick down so the toy or puppet is hidden inside the can or cup, then push it up suddenly when you want the jack-in-the-can to greet your baby.
Let's Play! Cause and Effect
Appropriate for: 6 to 18 months
Skills developed: Concept of cause and effect, spatial relationships
What you'll need: Common household items
As babies become more observant and attuned to the notion of cause and effect, they get fascinated by light switches, TV remotes, and other things that seem like powerful agents of change. Cater to that fascination by showing your baby how certain actions bring certain results.
Start with simple changes: Open and close a cupboard door or dresser drawer, then turn a light switch on and off (besides on/off, this demonstrates light versus dark).
Then branch out into more active scenarios: Roll a ball across the floor to your baby or put a stuffed animal at the edge of the table, then push it off onto the chair. Or just encourage her to ring the doorbell. If you're feeling really adventurous, let her turn the faucet on and off – as long as it's the cold one.
Let's Play! Sound Off
Appropriate for: 4 to 8 months
Skills developed: Auditory
What you'll need: Various kitchen implements
As your baby gets older, new sounds from unexpected places engage her attention. In addition, at this age she's starting to understand that a movement made here results in a sound made there. Coming up with novel ways to produce sound is as easy as rummaging through your kitchen cabinets.
Give raspberry blowing a new twist by filling a glass or a clear plastic cup with water and blowing bubbles into it with a straw. Your baby will not only like the sight of the bubbles, but she'll also find the noise most intriguing. (Don't let her handle the glass or straw herself.)

Swirl a metal spatula or spoon around inside a metal bowl for another captivating sound. Crinkle some tinfoil or wax paper, set off the kitchen timer, or open and shut the trash can. As long as your baby is supervised, there's no reason the sounds of the kitchen shouldn't entertain her safely.
Bubble Bottle
Appropriate for: 6 months and up
Skills developed: Dexterity, familiarity with colors
What you'll need: A clear plastic bottle with a tightly fitting screw-on lid; food coloring; vegetable oil, water, an Alka-Seltzer tablet
Fill a large, clear plastic bottle, such as a soda pop or water bottle, three-quarters full of vegetable oil. (It's helpful to have a funnel for this step, though not necessary.) Fill the rest of the bottle almost to the top with water. Add ten to 12 drops of food coloring. Then break the Alka-Seltzer into small pieces and drop one into the bottle. Put the cap on and watch it start bubbling! When it stops, you can add more Alka-Seltzer to start the bubbling all over again.
Let's Play! Signs and Signals & A Great Fall
Appropriate for: 6 months to 1 year
Skills developed: Hand-eye coordination, communication
What you'll need: No equipment necessary
Your baby knows what he wants. He just doesn't always know how to ask for it. Teaching him some simple signs can help reduce his frustration – and yours! – and can be a wonderful bonding experience.

At this age, he's not quite dexterous enough to make many of the movements himself, so you should keep any signs you use around him to a bare minimum. Start with two easy signs: "hungry" and "sleepy." For "hungry," mimic bringing a small piece of food up to your mouth while saying, "Are you hungry?" For "sleepy," rub your eyes and ask, "Are you sleepy?"

Every time you ask the question, make the gesture, and every time you see him make anything remotely like the gesture, ask the question and repeat the movement. Don't be disappointed if it takes a long time for him to imitate you (which he might never do); the simple act of communication is valuable.
Let's Play! A Great Fall
Appropriate for: 5 months to 1 year
Skills developed: Gross motor, sense of cause and effect
What you'll need: No equipment necessary
On a rug indoors or outside on soft grass, lie on your back with your knees raised. Seat your baby on your tummy facing you, leaning back against your knees. Steadying her with your hands, sway from side to side.

Start reciting the nursery rhyme "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great..." and on the word "fall," tip your knees so that your baby slides a little to the side. Or, let her "fall" all the way to the ground while you support her and protect her head with your hands.
Finish saying the rest of the rhyme curled up on the floor or grass with your baby, ending with a quick tickle when you get to the phrase "together again." Then help her get situated on your tummy again for another go-round.
