Hi Tahereem,

Here are a few resources you can try out with your 6 months old. Hope you find all of this useful.

You should also check out baby developmental milestones articles to understand how your baby is developing and focus activities around how the baby is progressing:

In line with development milestones, here is a suggestion you might find useful.

Around this time, your baby may be learning that she can make her hands touch each other, as well as the rest of the world. Even before she masters this skill, clapping games will probably give her a thrill. What's more, they give her a chance to spend time with you face-to-face and to try to mimic your actions.

Skills developed: two-hand coordination

What you'll need: no equipment necessary

it cross-legged on the floor with your baby facing you. If she can’t sit up on her own yet, prop a pillow behind her. Then sing this song to any tune you like, acting out the commands as you come to them:

Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap your tiny hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap your tiny hands

Additional verses:
Stomp, stomp, stomp your feet… (and so on).
Pat, pat, pat your head... (and so on).
Rub, rub, rub your tummy... (and so on).

Help your baby to make the movements herself, even if it means holding her ankles and gently stomping her feet for her. You can continue to make up sillier and sillier verses, such as wiggling your eyebrows or sticking out your tongue, as long as she continues to giggle.

Here are fun games to play with your four to six month old baby as he starts to explore and communicate.

Motor Games and Activities:
- Place baby on their tummy to play in short spurts for up to an hour over the course of the day
- Place baby tummy down on a blanket and move the blanket slowly around the room
- Allow baby to explore age appropriate toys with their mouth and tongue (be sure that the toys are large enough so that baby does not risk choking)
- Promote baby pushups, by holding baby’s attention with a toy and encouraging baby to push up on hands and hold position for a short period
- Encourage baby to practice repeated rolling from back to tummy. - Place toys around to encourage pivoting

Sensory Games and Activities:
- Encourage baby to touch fabric with different textures such as wool, corduroy, and velvet
- Lift baby up and down and play in different positions to help develop their sense of movement and balance
- Find balls with different textures and colors. Teach baby how to roll, drop, and bounce them.
- Communication Games and Activities
- Play peek-a-boo
- Use a variety of facial expressions while you talk
- Read with baby. “Reading” can simply mean describing pictures without following the written words.
- Encourage two-way communication. When baby coos or babbles, be sure to respond and take turns in “conversation”.
- Hold a doll or stuffed animal and point out all the different body parts
- Play with rhymes and songs
- Encourage baby to play with toys that make sounds

Feeding Games and Activities:
- Collect a variety of scents (flowers, spices, cookies) and pass them under baby’s nose one at a time to see what kinds of smells they prefer.
