Baby Activities 6-9 Months

Are you looking for a way to entertain your 6-9 Month Old Baby? 

Keep reading and check out these Fun & Easy Baby Activities that will keep your little one busy and entertained.

Are you desperately looking for fun activities to entertain your Baby and just not as creative as all these genius Pinterest Moms? We both should be friends. Because I am the exact same!

Honestly, most of the day I don’t really know what to do with my daughter. I love watching her play with toys or explore our living room, but once she looks at me with her marble eyes, expecting some interaction, I feel overwhelmed.

If you feel just like me, you can stop worrying and finally start enjoying playtime!

Today I will share some genius and most importantly easy ways to entertain your Baby.  

Baby Activities 6-9 Months  
For You & Baby

Peek A Boo 

Probably not a lot explaining necessary for this one, right? It’s the perfect game if your Baby can’t crawl yet. Either use your hands or a blanket to hide your face or make it even more exciting and move out of your Baby’s visual range like behind your Baby or a door. Make a noise or call „Where is ….“ so your Baby can turn around or look for you before you show. Just move to different locations every time to play again.

You can combine this game with some speech training. Use „Hi“ and „Bye“ whenever you hide and show up, this way your baby will learn to say these words much faster and understand the meaning behind them.

Hiding Toys

A super simple activity I regularly do with my daughter: Show your Baby some smaller toys before hiding them under a look-threw object, like a glass or a transparent blanket/swaddle. You will challenge your Baby’s perception and develop his ability to find hidden objects.

Hide & Seek

Once your Baby starts crawling, this will be a super easy and entertaining activity for both of you. Either hide yourself or a noisy toy somewhere for your Baby to find. Whenever your Baby finds you or the object, make sure to celebrate him.

Baby Activities 6-9 Months

Tug Of War 

Simply give your Baby a towel or something else to hold on to. Gently pull on the other end while going back and forth between you and your Baby. This will not only be fun and lets your Baby experience a new motion, but also help with upper body strength.

Filling & Emptying 

Grab a container, transparent would work best, and fill it with small, safe, and age-appropriate toys. Now start showing your Baby how to put toys into the container and encourage him to try. This activity will help develop the understanding of spatial relations: “How much fits inside”. Once your Baby figured that one out, show them to take those toys out again.

Three Hands 

Make sure your Baby has one toy in each hand. Once both hands are busy, offer your Baby a third object. Watch if he will try to grab the toy with both full hands or let the other toys drop. This activity actually encourages problem-solving and over time your Baby will put down one of the toys before grasping the new one.

Baby Activities 6-9 Months

Reading Books 

This one is probably the most timeless activity out there and appropriate for every age. Grab some books, sit down right next to your Baby, and start your Story Time. Reading is so beneficial for your Baby’s speech and brain development. Plus it’s super easy and doable for you. 

Baby Activities 6-9 Months

Obstacle “Crawl”

Once your Baby starts crawling, you can set up a little obstacle course for him. Use different pillows, blankets or even a sheet draped over a chair to make a tunnel. It’s very fun and entertaining to watch and your Baby will develop his crawling skills as well as body strength and coordination.

Going For A Walk 

Another timeless and easy activity for every age group. Since nature is full of different colors, shapes and textures, it’s the perfect learning ground for your Baby. Your Baby is now in an appropriate age to be sitting on the ground to explore. Encourage them to touch and feel the grass, rocks, sticks and leaves. Make sure to watch out for any choking hazards and don’t leave your Baby unattended with any objects.
