i almost forgot, at this age they are just starting to learn that toys are still there when they cant see them. put a favorite rattle under a cloth, and lift the cloth to show them, and let them move the cloth to get the toy. Your baby will feel so proud of themselves. Babies love to be challanged (assuming they are not hungry or sleepy)

My girl is 7 months!! And she loves the game Peek-a-boo, exsersuacer, jolly jumper, loud noisey toys, blocks, we play hide the toy n she finds it!, she also loves it when we make funny faces, or say crazy words, do the airplan they love it!

my sons 6mths now and we alternate him between his bouncing chair, Exersaucer, tummy time play toy (its this think he goes on his stomach on that puts him into crawl position and he can turn in a circle on it..i hope you know what im talking about), his bumbo chair, his highchair with toys on the feeding tray and letting him roll around on his giant foam puzzle pieces with all his favorite toys (he loves the colors and different textures of the foam mat).

He loves the change and we usually move him every 15 or 20 min

Toys and different chairs are a great way to keep him busy while mommy does work around the house and when i can i turn on the radio and sing and make faces with him while doing chores (our kitchen and living room are one room though so it helps..)

reading, singing, talking to , pointing to pictures, peek a boo, things like this are usually all they need at that age

An old classic and great game to play is peek-a-boo. With my daughter (now 15 months) we would say "Where's Savannah?'' and put a blanket over her and then lift it and say "There she is." You can also do it with your hands, but your little one probably won't copy you until he's closer to 1. You can also hide toys under blankets. That's a great game in order for him to understand object permanace (knowing the toy is under the blanket and didn't just disappear). You can read to him and give him his own soft book to "read" and chew on. Blowing bubbles on his tummy is a great way to make him laugh. You can also start naming things for him so that when he starts talking you'll be surprised at home fast he learns words. You can buy him some musical toys and other learning toys to play with. My daughter loved toys that spun at that age. I hope some of those will help.
