What activities do you do with a 10 mos old?

Any suggestions? I just don't know what to do with him all day! Is it ok for him to play by himself most of the day? Sometimes he's fine and other times he wants me to play and play or hold him and ... I'm lost and don't have much money

Peak-a-boo was a favourite! Also my daughter started crawling at 10 months so we just had fun with movement and crawling all over the house. I of course crawled with her and we played "catch me". Really anything that your little one seems interested in can be a game. I would give her a little bowl of bubbles when I would do the dishes(on anything but carpet, it cleans up so easily and it is fun for them). We would go around the house so she could turn the lights on and off. Seriously, anything can be a game and anything you do with your child is a learning experience.

maybe you should try and get down on the floor and play too, children love it when u sit with them and play, i found it relaxing, and when my daughter was that age i started doing activities like teaching her colors, shapes, body parts and reading to her and teaching her how to talk.. and by the time she started going to preschool she was ahead of some of the children in her class ..and now that she is in kindergarten shes doing really well and she's pretty smart, and applies herself, and most of all loves school. and no it doesn't hurt for them to play by them selves , i just wouldn't let him play all day by himself because then hes not gonna want to interact with any other children (maybe) depends on the child ..that's why its good to get down and play and even set up play dates with friends of yours that have children his age or a little older or younger then him. try it out and see how that works for you.
