1. LITTLE DRUMMERS

Materials needed: Rattle, spoons, pots and pans, bells, cymbals, drums

What to do: Make music using percussion instruments. "Find fun tunes to play that have a rousing beat," suggests Dr. Myers. "Play along with her as well as encouraging her to play by herself."

Skills learned: Coordination, listening skills, and musical exploration

2. PLAYING HOUSE

Materials needed: Large cardboard box or store-bought play tunnel or playhouse

What to do: Create a fort out of a cardboard box, play tunnel, or playhouse. Include an entrance and an exit, and encourage your child to go in and out. (You might need to show him at first.) Up the entertainment factor with some pretend play, like knocking on the door or ringing the doorbell, and asking if anyone is home, Dr. Myers suggests.

Skills learned: Social skills, gross motor skills and exploring their environment

3. TELEPHONE CALL

Materials needed: Toy telephone or old phone

What to do: Hand a phone to your child and keep one for yourself. Pretend to make calls, and hold conversations with each other or imaginary people. Use funny voices, and create silly characters on the other line.

Variations: Some play telephones allow you to record your and your child's voices and play them back, which can enhance the fun.

Skills learned: Language and social development

4. BEACH PARTY

Materials needed: Sand, water, buckets, spoons, plastic shovels, large tub

What to do: Sand and water play are great activities when your child reaches 18 months. Fill a large tub with water or sand, and give your child free rein to dig, pour, scoop, and more. "Play along with them as well as encouraging solo play," says Dr. Myers. "When you're playing with them, talk and sing along. Encourage them to copy what you're doing, and then try to copy what they're doing." It's important to note: Never leave your child unattended around water.

Variations: Have another child join in parallel play.

Skills learned: Creative play, fine motor skills, tactile stimulation, and social development

5. TUBE TALK

Materials needed: Empty paper towel tube

What to do: Talk or make silly sounds to your baby through a cardboard tube, and see how she reacts and responds to the change in your normal speaking voice. Let her take a turn to see what sounds she can make. "Kids this age love to play with language, and this activity gives them an opportunity to practice new and novel sounds," Dr. Leiderman says. " Language is really about imitatin

Amita appreciate ur ideas really nice. I played hide n seek with my lo. Danced with him. Given him different Tupperware boxes with lids n ask him to pair up lids with boxes. From one cups we transferred beans with spoon to other n later with hand. He
enjoyed shadows in dark using flash light of my phone behind him. Please note flash light always kept behind him n not in front.
