During the first year of a baby's life, it is necessary to select very simple games that will contribute to his development. At this time, the child's brain develops especially quickly, so any skills and information are easily assimilated. Even not very long, but daily activities with the baby will contribute to noticeable results.
Among the most common games with children under 1 year old are “Okay, okay”, “Ku-ku”: close your eyes with your palms, while saying “ku-ku” or “Okay, okay, where were you? - By Grandma!".
Place the baby on your lap. Raise and lower them up, saying “Over bumps, over bumps, along small paths. Into the hole - boo! ". Spread your knees slightly on the last few words to let the child fall a little. You can play with him to the music.
A child under one year old really enjoys pressing various buttons and moving the levers, as this helps him learn to use his muscles, as well as handle new things. But it's better to hide the remote away from the TV and give your kid toys with different handles and buttons that you can move and press.
Your child will definitely like toys that can be assembled from several parts, for example, trains with carriages and pyramids. Children also love to take toys out of the drawer and put them back. It helps in the development of motor functions. Try giving your toddler a rubber ball or kicking toy. This game will help develop the muscles of the legs and improve their coordination.
The kid needs to show photographs more often so that he can remember familiar objects and animals, as well as allow him to turn the pages of albums and books on his own.
Simple questions will teach your child to better perceive speech and develop his memory. Show him the object and ask the question: "What is it?" Ask questions about things or animals familiar to your child, such as "How does a dog bark?" Even if the child cannot say the phrase in full, he will definitely try to imitate what he heard.
Young children are very fond of throwing various objects on the floor. To do this, give your baby cubes, wooden spoons, soft toys, rubber tweeters, etc. At the same time, the baby develops fine motor skills, cognitive abilities, eyesight, and hearing.
