8 Simple Ways to Engage and Entertain Babies 6 to 12 Months.

Babies can be hard to entertain. They’re small, they don’t really understand much yet, and they just want to play with the toys you have around the house. You’ve probably tried a number of things like letting them watch TV or giving them toys that use lights and sounds, but your baby may not always appreciate it. If you’re looking for some easy ways to get babies more engaged and entertained, these eight ideas are sure to help you out!

Play with sound

Sound is an engaging way to keep babies entertained. Try playing some music or a noise machine while they are sleeping or playing. This will help them find something to look at and also let them know there’s something going on around them.


Another great idea for sound is to use a vibrator for your baby. You can put it in the crib, car seat, or stroller so that your baby can use it as a distraction when they get restless. The vibration of the vibrator will keep their attention and entertain them, too!

Play with light

Most nannusays love to play with light. It’s easy to make toys that use light. Light up a few different colors of balloons and put them in front of your baby, then watch as they start bobbing around trying to catch the bouncing balloons. Another way to play with light is by using glow-in-the-dark stars and putting them on the ceiling for your baby to look at.

Play with texture

If your baby is starting to show an interest in different textures, you’re doing a good job. So try playing with them by putting some different types of cloth in their hands and letting them feel the texture.

You can also put a piece of cloth over your baby’s eyes and let them explore how the light changes depending on what type of fabric is on the other side. You can even use a small piece of fabric to make sure they don’t get too close to something that could be dangerous for them.

Play with movement

When you think about the way babies learn, it’s probably through movement. Babies may seem like they don’t understand much at first, but they are actually amazing little learners.


 They start to develop their motor skills and their sense of self from the time they are very young, so it’s important to keep them active.

One of the simplest ways to keep your baby entertained is by putting them in a bouncy seat or a swing.


 It doesn’t take long for a baby to get bored in these seats because they don’t have anything to do! To make sure your baby stays busy, play with movement. You can bounce them up and down or swing them side-to-side while playing with their favorite toy.

Your baby will love this game and it doesn’t even require any extra effort on your part!

Sing to your baby

Babies love music. They’re not just hearing it, they’re also feeling it. If you want to entertain your baby, why not try singing a song?


There are many different ways you can sing to your baby. You can sing them the alphabet, sing them a lullaby, or make up a new song for them to listen to. You could even write down the lyrics of the songs and let your baby watch you as you sing. And if you have time, record yourself singing and play it back for your little one.


Research has shown that babies who are entertained with music have better brain development than babies who aren’t! So why not give your baby some entertainment that’s good for their brains?

Get creative

Babies are constantly developing and learning new skills. They need to explore and investigate the world around them, which is why it’s important to provide your baby with toys that stimulate their senses.


To make your baby more engaged, try playing with a few of these ideas:


1) Give your baby a cardboard box or blanket to snuggle in and explore

2) Turn off lights and give your baby an interesting texture to touch—look for things like sandpaper, dry rice, or dry beans

3) Let your baby explore textures by rubbing them on their face or clothes

4) Play games that use shapes or colors

5) Turn on music for some background noise and play games where you sing along with your child

6) If you have a lot of food lying around, let your baby feed from a spoon (they’ll love trying new foods!)

Create a gallery wall

A gallery wall is a perfect way to showcase your Nannu Says artwork and help them express their creativity. In addition to helping them keep their creative juices flowing, it will also help them learn colors.


To create a gallery wall, you need a few things: an empty wall space somewhere in your home (or office), an art supply store, paintbrushes, and a can of spray adhesive. Once you have that figured out, all you’ll need is some time and patience!


1. Design the layout of your gallery wall

Take some time to plan out how you want your gallery wall to look. Remember that there’s no right or wrong way to do this! You can use whatever colors you like for the paint as long as it fits with your home decor.

The Importance of a Gallery Wall to Engagement and Entertainment in Babies

Gallery walls are a great way to encourage babies to explore and find new items. These pieces of art can even help stimulate their brains.

A gallery wall can be a great way to engage your baby. It’s also a great way to provide entertainment for their little minds. Gallery walls are a great attention-grabber and they can be used indoors or outdoors too!


If you want to get your baby more engaged, it’s important that you have toyed around the house that they can play with. Also, give them colorful, fun things like blocks and balls for them to explore on the floor. This will help keep their attention towards your gallery wall and away from other things like TV or furniture!


If you’re looking for some cool ideas for gallery walls, there are plenty of ways you can go about putting one together. You could place something from magazines in frames and hang it up on the wall or use an adhesive canvas on the wall. Whatever your preference is, make sure you have plenty of engaging toys around the house for your baby!


There is a saying that “Babies are smarter than you think.” I agree with this statement and it is really true. They do not just lay in bed all day staring at a mobile or a ceiling fan. 


They are engaged with their surroundings and they have to have a sense of touch, sound, sight, and sound.

Here are some of the ways that I have found to help engage and entertain babies 6 to 12 months.
