So, you have got a 7-month old! Your baby is probably on the move in some way, whether that is rolling, scooting, or crawling. They are also probably interacting with you more than ever before leaving you looking for new fun ways to play together and keep them entertained. So, we at Rookie Moms are here to help you out with some ideas for things to do with a 7-month old!
15 Fun Things To Do with a 7-Month Old
1. Get a play kit from Lovevery.
The 7-8 Month Play Kit will help you lay a foundation for important skills for your baby and you can have fun while doing it! I love that they provide with ideas for how to engage your little one with the toys.
2. Blow bubbles for your baby.
Bubbles are a fun sensory activity to help develop hand-eye coordination. Your baby will love watching the bubbles float around them and have a blast once they figure out they can reach out and pop them.
3. Take a sensory tour around the neighborhood.
It is so good for both you and your baby to get some fresh air when the weather is nice. Pop them in the stroller or a front-facing carrier and let them take in the sights, sounds, and smells in your neighborhood.
4. Teach and practice baby sign language.
Your baby isn’t talking yet, but that doesn’t mean they can’t communicate with you. Learning basic sign language together is one of the best things to do with a 7-month old.
5. Chase the toy!
Encourage your baby to crawl by placing one of their favorite toys in front of them while they are on their belly in front of you.
6. Plan and execute a car nap.
Well, this might be more of an activity for mom but still. While your little one is napping in the back listen to a podcast or your favorite audio book.
7. Put on a hand puppet show.
Okay, I get that it may seem a little weird but your baby will love watching you play with hand puppets and having them talk to each other.
8. Introduce your baby to Tupperware.
Rearrange your cabinets so that you baby has a drawer to rummage through.
9. Play Peek a Boo.
If you are looking for a way to make your baby laugh, you have to try Peek a Boo!
10. Go on a picnic.
Grab your favorite meal to-go and enjoy a meal outdoor with your baby.
11. Make art together ziplock finger painting.
Put a piece of paper and a few squirts of paint in a sealed ziplock bag. Your little one can squish and spread the paint around without the mess.
12. Find a swimming pool that’s just the right temperature and go for it.
Swimming with a baby is a slippery but rewarding experience.
13. Play with blocks.
Your baby probably isn’t ready to build anything yet, but they are old enough to start moving around and picking up blocks.
14. Have your baby practice tummy time.
At 7 months, it is still important to have your baby practice tummy time. We have tons of ideas for tummy time, check them out here!
15. Read together!
It’s never too early to instill a love of reading.
