Simple Baby Activities to Do This Week

And then there’s baby activities. Everyone wants to know what to do with their baby! Especially if they have older kids, they need to entertain the little ones while they do activities with the big kids!

Baby activities are very simple in nature. They can’t be complicated, just because of the ability of babies.

Most the time I try to include the following in each week for the activities planners:
