Musical Instruments - [Special thanks to Kate, our Facebook friend for this idea]

SUITABLE FOR AGES 0-2, 2+

Music time is great fun and making the instruments yourself even more so. Get pots and pans and wooden spoons for the drums, put pasta and rice in water bottles for shakers. Get a box and put elastic bands around it for a guitar and kitchen roll and toilet roll tubes to make the trumpets. Then make as much noise as you can with your own little band!

REQUIRES 1 OR MORE PLAYERS

INDOORS

TIME NEEDED: 60+ MINS

Pat A Cake

SUITABLE FOR AGES 0-2, 2+

With a baby in a high chair/car seat, clap your hands and then open your palms for the baby to meet with his/hers. There are lots of rhymes that can be sang along to. Developing motor control is important for young children and bigger muscles develop first. Pat a cake is a great game to develop the arm muscles that will later be used to hold pens and crayons in place and facilitate fine motor development

Stimulate babies' senses

SUITABLE FOR AGES 0-2

Let babies explore their toys by themselves. Rattles, teethers and squeaky toys are great for this. Make sure all the toys are clean as they will inevitably end up in their mouth!
