52 Activities for You and Your Baby

I just wanted to let you all know about a good resource if you're a bit clueless like me about ways to play with your baby. "52 Activities for You and Your Baby" is a set of cards, each with an activity written by Lynn Gordon and illustrated by Karen Johnson. Some of them are really obvious activities that you could do, but there are also some really fun and creative ideas. It also contains words to fun rhymes and songs from when I was a child that I had forgotten the words to!

Here's the link to the product on Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/52-Activities-You-Your-Baby/dp/0811836290/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1212243476&sr=8-1

Not come across that book before thanks for the link.:)

There are so many things you can do with baby the easiest is to sing and talk about everything and anything. Describe things; sing your favourite songs and rhymes they'll hear soon. Read them stories or the story you're reading. They love to hear your voice.
My big guy, now, loved to gaze at his "Congratulations you have a boy" balloon. We lowered it so he could see- probably just the shape and the shine- of it. Once he was a little older we tied it to his leg ( whilst watching in the same room) and he loved how he could make it dance by kicking his foot. It was a sad day when that balloon deflated.
