A simple, but fun, week of baby activities!
After sharing the four general weekly planners with my incredible newsletter subscribers, I asked if they had any suggestions for new weekly planners.
By far, everyone wants to know what to do with their one year old, so I shared a week of activities for one year olds last 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:
- a gross motor activity
- a fine motor activity
- a craft
- an art project
- an outdoor activity
- an experiment or something to get them thinking
- a family activity for Sunday
Don’t have the kids activities planner? Get it here free and use it week after week.
I tried my best to include them all for baby activities, but couldn’t quite get into the crafts and experiments.
