Ideas for activities with your baby aged between 0 and 12 months

9 months to 1 year: imitating animals

Well before they know how to speak, your baby can learn to imitate noises, particularly the sounds that animals make. Give them a little picture book with photos of animals that they know. Go through it together and with each photo, say what the animal is called and imitate the noise it makes: "cat: meow meow, dog: woof woof, duck: quack quack". Right from the first time you do it, your child will certainly be very intrigued by these unusual noises. And if you do this on a regular basis, they will soon start to imitate the noise that each animal makes with you!
