Perhaps he will want to repeat these sounds.

Baby cubes: Make several red cardboard cubes and one yellow (well suited for this purpose 250-gram milk packaging, glued adhesive paper). In yellow cube will put a bell. Observe whether the child, finding the cube with a bell, to distinguish it by color.

Box with holes: Children like to stick their fingers in the small holes, and you masete to make a "toy"that will delight your baby. Take a small box with thin walls and follow with two sides, two holes the width of a finger. Inside line the walls of boxes of different material - fur, burlap, velvet or sandpaper. Show the child how to stick a finger in the hole. (And you can stick your finger in the other hole.) Talk with your child about what he feels his finger, touching the walls of the boxes, there soft and pleasant or wall is rough and hard, and so on, With this box you can play even in the car.

Let's break into pieces: Some children in ten months already try something to break. Old magazines, tissue paper, wrapping paper or foil give the baby the opportunity to experiment with them. Just do not forget that the child may want to try what this paper taste. Children's experiences in obtaining small pieces of paper require close monitoring. If you see that the kid is more fun to shove a piece of paper in her mouth, than to break it, better put these lessons at a later date.

Feeling the instability of the surface, the child is sharper will understand that such a balance. This activity will contribute to improved coordination of his movements. Rubber ring will be useful for bathrooms - the child can throw objects into the center of the circle, this game usually like children that can last a very long time.

The toy you want to reach: If your child is already pulled, trying to stand on his feet, he can be given the task. Put favorite toys baby on the low table so that he had to reach them. Taking the items, he coached spatial orientation.

New solutions

Or in a box for toys?" When the child can find the photo, joyfully welcome discovery: "Dad was!" Soon the baby will be happy with you.

Where toy: Put a small toy in a paper bag or in a box. Let the child try to get a toy, this experience will help him better understand what is inside and what is outside.

Curler: Give your child curlers two different sizes, watch if he wants to put less in more.

Toy on a string: Tie ribbon or rope toys that your child likes to play, sitting on his high chair, and the other end of the ribbon tie to the handle of a chair or table. Your child will love to pick up the toy, pulling Telemaco.

Where is sister? Show the child two pictures of your family members (for instance, his brother and sister). Cover both pictures with a towel or cloth and ask your child to find where his brother, and then, where sister. You will be surprised how many understands your child.

Everyday things

Feeding time

All together: From empty boxes of cereal and cans of juice, containers for eggs, jars from under oil, etc. can be magnificent castles and bridges for your baby. These unstable structures will demonstrate to your child about what the force of gravity and the laws of equilibrium.

Warehouse materials: These kitchen-construction materials also need living space. Scroll to the kid any mailbox, so that they could store all boxes and jars for the children before dinner games. Let the kid himself puts them in a box, it will give him great pleasure, almost the same as from the construction of castles.

Seat for baby: For a child, you can buy special high seat, which will give him the opportunity to spend time at the table, especially if you are together with your kid go to a restaurant. A happy child will be sitting next to you, but in this case, of course, you will not be able to guarantee the safety of the tablecloth. As there is no certainty that the part of the food will not be under the table. (This problem can be solved spread on the floor a plastic tablecloth.) The restaurant "Necessary margin" : If you took the child with him in the restaurant, you can amuse your baby, taking with him a "snack". Put in a paper bag pieces of crackers, crumbs of cheese or cold lumps of unsweetened cereal. Even if the food itself are not interested in the kid, he likes to get up in a paper bag.

Bath time

Bubbles: bubbles is good fun, and your child will be happy to blow bubbles through a straw, sitting in my bathtub with clean water. First you blow air through a straw bubbles, and then give a straw for the baby, so he did the same, mimicking you.

Command: In the first ten months of the baby is ready to execute simple commands. "Wash your tummy!", "Wash your feet!" and the baby will be happy to follow all your instructions and be proud of their intelligence.

Rain, rain: In a child's bath is quite possible to arrange the rain. A small plastic box turns into "the cloud", you only need to do it the little hole. Let the kid himself will pour in a box of water, and you lift it up: "Look, what a rain!"

Surprises: Wrap in "bathing" rag plastic or rubber toy and give it to the child. It is little secret that he might reveal, sitting in his bath. Show him how to do it. Soon he will want to arrange such a surprise for you.

The holidays

Light and shadow: Close the curtains, put out the light and light electric torch. Slowly move around the room with a flashlight in hand. First, the baby will try to track the movement of light, and then fall asleep.

The album "Quiet nights" Before laying the baby, put on some appropriate record. When the baby closes her eyes, make the sound quieter.
