My baby loves music, so I have a few CDs of kids songs that we sing. You can get the doll that has the button, zipper, snap and tie so baby can learn those things.
One thing we do that's free is look up all the online stories. We sit at the computer and watch readings of chilren's books. You can also go to story time at your local library.
I also let my daughter fingerpaint with yogurt in her high chair. And I save the wipes boxes and we make boxes of favorite things, like pictures, toys, socks. She loves sorting things and putting them in the boxes.
