Playing with baby grandchildren

When playing with your grandchild, you don’t need to have expensive toys.  Using homemade toys or household objects is a great way to play and encourage creativity.

Ideas for play with babies
  • Singing songs or nursery rhymes.
  • Read colourful children’s books.
  • Talk face-to-face and mimick baby sounds.
  • Use household items in play; a hat, keys that jingle or soft toys.
