I got together with four good friends this week for a babes and babies party ;-). Each of us have daughters which range in age from from 3 months to 1 year. It was so much fun! Part of the day was to be spent making sensory boards (sadly, we ran out of time for), which was too bad because lately I’ve been on the hunt for great activities/toys for 1 year olds.

We perused Target the other day and the new Vtech toys are so cool! This Alphabet Train looks awesome! I love when toys are highly engaging, functional and educational all wrapped into one. I also love that it can be used for several stages of development.

We are way into Peek-a-Boo and reading books rights now, but this list has some other good ideas to try. Baby J is also way into music and dancing so I thought it would be fun to try and make a drum like this.

Also we are moving into the direction of games and pretend play and I thought this list of ideas was helpful!

Wish me luck in this new stage of development! We LOVED watching her grow up this first year of life, now here we go onto year number two.

What are your favorite games and activities for a one year old?
