Today I want to talk about how you can take a child in a year. I remember my son at this age: active, inquisitive, mobile. You need to watch him constantly, because he is climbing everywhere!
I remember when my toddler learned to crawl. So funny! It was a funny time when he quickly crawled from room to room. And then (at 10 months) started walking. And if before that you could sit quietly, but now it is unrealistic simple. I started to walk – and my eyes are just looking at him!
In the year children actively explore the world. And they absolutely do not understand such forbidden words, it is impossible, dangerous, no. They all grab what they can grab, everywhere they climb, everyone tries their teeth. But in the house they await danger. And every mommy needs to make sure that the children do not cheat, do not hurt themselves and do not hit.
Besides, as I was convinced, children are bored with toys. They do not want a long time to do something alone. They are eager for more and more new entertainment, toys. They want to know the world. This means that mom is the best friend, should not only entertain at this age, but also develop it, playing and showing the world.
Joint games with the baby
I know perfectly well that mother is an integral part of a little man. But I can not always be around! We have to be distracted by household chores: cleaning, cooking, washing. And I have another child! So we had to play it all together.
Since the daughter is older than her son by 3 years, he had to play her games. He used to start collecting sisters, constructors and watch books. But in this I see a plus. After all, he is developing, thus, taking an example from his older sister. What can take a year old baby?
In the year of complex construction of pyramids kiddies still difficult to collect. But the pyramids, which consist of 3-4 elements, it is under the force of any tadpole. Well, if it is large and safe parts. Such that the child can not swallow, hurt them and harm themselves. There are soft pyramids made of cotton, they are velcro. There are many other soft pyramids with developing elements.
Good alternative to pyramids. Crumbs can also be put on each other. This is how coordination of movements develops, which is very important at this age. We had soft cubes. I think that a child simply amuses them at that age: sucking, licking or nibbling. But in order to lay down the image of an animal or fruit from 4 cubes, you need to grow a little more.
But I gave my little boy to play with solid cubes. Together with my sister, they built something. True, she built, and he only studied the construction business.
They amused him, but not for long. Watching colorful pictures is informative, but they quickly get bored. Therefore, books need to be changed. The child is interested not in the text, but in the pictures themselves. And the brighter and more informative they will be, the better, I think. There are even thematic books. It seems like this: In the garden, In the city, Animals, Fruits and vegetables.
The baby needs to move, of course! But how to play with him? It can be hide-and-seek, catch-up, teasers. We imagined ourselves bugs or worms and crawled behind each other. It was fun and funny. They also played pups with them: they fed them, they rolled them in a carriage.
How did you play with your children at the age of one? What and how were they entertained?
