5 Fun Activities for 9-12 Month Olds

Today I thought I’d share a few fun activities for your 9-12 month old little one.

My little one is almost 10 months old, I can’t believe how fast she’s grown. Not to mention my older middle child just turned 10 last week and my other two will be 4 and 12 in December. WOW!

Anyways, as my youngest little one has started exploring more I noticed that she has a fascination with paper. My other kids didn’t have this obsession. I found it almost annoying at first. I can’t let her play with books like I did my other kids, she ruins them by ripping out the pages, then ripping them to tiny little shreds. It’s sad, but a few of our cherished books have been mutilated. She even found a way to tear apart the board books that we have. Ugh!

So, with this obstacle came a new set of activities I had to think of for her, well because I couldn’t have her ripping up all of our books, but I still wanted her to be able to explore this fascination that she has.

Here are 5  fun activities that have sparked her interest:

  • Post it grab:
    • You will need: A piece of paper and small post it notes.
    • Directions: Stick several post it notes to the piece of paper and show your little one that they can be pulled off.
  • Sticker Pickin’:
    • You will need: A piece of paper and stickers.
    • Directions: Stick several of the stickers on the paper with the edges still up enough to be able to get a little bit of a grasp on. Show your child that the stickers can be pulled up.
  • Tape pulling:
    • You will need: A piece of paper (Or anything you want to stick it to…) and painters or masking tape.
    • Directions: Apply tape to your paper (or other surface) leaving a small edge lifted. Show your little one that the tape can be pulled off.
  • Fridge magnets and paper:
    • You will need: Large fridge magnets and paper.
    • Directions: Place several pieces of paper on the fridge with magnets. Show your child that they can be pulled down and placed back.
  • Paper Wrinkling:
    • You will need: Scraps of paper, old magazines, newspapers.
    • Directions: Give the papers to your child and let them wrinkle and rip away!

By the end of each of these activities I inevitably have scraps of paper everywhere, but that’s ok. I’m just glad it keeps her occupied and having fun for a little while.

Please remember: Paper, stickers, tape, and magnets are all CHOKING hazards! All of these activities are meant to be done with adult supervision at ALL times!
