10 Best Fun Playing Ideas for Your Children
The coming of little ones at home is divine. The emotion that they provide to their parents contains divinity. However, it is a bit complicated to keep your baby engaged in activities between the ages of six months and two years.
As toddlers grow, they learn to play with toys around them. However, when they are too little even to understand this new world, it is a bit difficult and complicated. They absorb things at this age. They see the world vividly. Do not worry, they are new here, and just like us, they need time, too.
We got you covered here if you wonder how to keep your baby engaged in activities and games. It is natural to think, "what a baby would play alone?". You are correct here. They would not be able to play alone. Thus, it would help if you were with them and around them.

3. Let Them Talk to the Birds and Animals
Little kids love to speak to animals and birds. Even when they see the animals not responding to them, they still enjoy doing that. They talk to them in their languages and then laugh. You would only stand there wondering what is making your child feel so happy. Besides that, we know you would not want to cage a bird for your child; and that is your suitable decision. We respect you for that.
Thus, take your baby to the balcony or your terrace in the evening, and let their talking show begin. We promise that you would enjoy observing them.
4. Hide and Seek
Playing hide and seek with your little one would be different. It should add your creativity to make it enjoyable because it is usually a game for older children who run to hide. However, that is still not an obstruction.
You are only required to use the concept of hiding and seek here, and the rest should be based on your ideas. Making them use their animals' toys to hide, pillows, or even soft blankets would work. We are sure you will make the game even more enjoyable with your ideas than its original one.
5. Free Drawing
We are sure you caught the idea behind the activity with its name itself. Get your toddler a drawing book and a set of crayon colours. The essence of free drawing is that your child shall draw and colour things out of their imagination. Let them be free, and create magic on their own. This would not just keep them engaged but also help them unleash their creativity. Make sure that you sit around them all this while. It is a safe activity; however, kids could take the colour in their mouths.
6. Horse Ride
Do you remember doing horse rides with your parents when you were little? Remember how it used to give you fun and unlimited laughing sessions? This is because kids enjoy that. They love it when they spend quality time with their parents while singing rhymes. Thus, it is your chance to make your child feel what your parents made you think.
Besides giving them fun, it also makes them familiar with the rhymes you want to introduce. Try this, and we assure you, even you will laugh seeing your child laughing happily.
7. One for You, One for Me
It is a sharing game and a perfect one for toddlers. It teaches them about the concept of sharing. Keep a lot of objects, and ask your child to share them with you by saying, "one for you, one for me". They will enjoy the process of giving objects to you with love and also learn the real essence of sharing, that is: happiness is when we live life by sharing.
8. Scavenger Hunt
Is there anything more interesting than the scavenger hunt? We assure you that this game is full of fun and learning. Make your toddler hunt objects near them, and enjoy their little wins.
Such games are meant for adults. However, it is not less than any interesting game for toddlers as well. Hide their favourite toys on the bed and around. Enjoy the game as your child makes efforts for it and smiles on finding them. This would not just give them immense fun but keep them engaged in the activity.
This is also one of the exciting games for your little one. This is because it focuses on three things: physical, cognitive, and emotional skills. You may be wondering how a little kid would solve a puzzle; however, they find it interesting when they see the picture puzzles in front of them. It keeps them engaged. You would be required to show them the puzzle picture first, then team up with them and solve the puzzle. We assure you that doing this activity would also build their patience and work on their memory.
10. Odd One Out
To keep the game engaging, collect many objects of the same colour and a few other colours. The task would be to take out the different ones from a group of similar things.
It is suggested that you do this more than one time. Kids enjoy their little victories and a lot more when they see their parents cheering them. Now you know what to do. Moreover, you can also choose other similar articles. For example, collect a lot of plant toys, and the other ones downright odd. They love it when they see the same game having diversity.
