Playtime Activities - 12 to 15 months

As my son got older we started to add a few more activities to our list. If any of these do not make sense to you please let me know and I would be happy to update this post.

Playtime Activities - 12 to 15 months

- Standing time with Mom or Dad
- Blocks Table (10 min)
- Crusin' around house furniture
- Play with walker
- Ball - pass, chase, bite
- Reading*
- Tickle time
- Music & Dance time
- "Help" with loading/unloading dishwasher
- Play with Tupperware & pans
- Open and close drawers & cabinets
- Stand up near open dryer while Mom loads laundry
- Go for a walk outside (take hats)
- Water the plants
- Grocery shopping in carrier
- Social event (1.5 hours max)
- Car ride ^^
- Visit the library
- Visit neighbors
- Stand in bathtub & play with toys

^^ Try to have this happen during nap time since he may fall asleep

Note: Mealtime can also be a good time to be silly with your child. We would practice our vowel & consonant sounds. Ben likes watching my mouth move :-)

Personal Note: My son had only one afternoon nap at around 13 months. Start time for nap changed from day to day due to teething.
