Rolling over happened for my daughter around 4.5 mo....sitting up unassisted around 6 mo....crawling around 9 mo. and walking at 10.5. Right now your baby is likely smiling, maybe giggling, paying a lot of attention to her surroundings (mine loved Baby Einstein at this age...Baby Noah and World Animals were favorites). She can probably grasp a small toy in her hand. Those wrist toys are good at this age...you velcro them around the wrist and they rattle. She can probably punch and hit toys that are dangling above her (get some links to lower toys to her level for more interaction). Tummy time and time with you to get some exercise is very important right now...put toys in front of her or overhead to encourage her to reach for them. Practice standing and squatting with mom's help (on your lap). Practice rolling her over so she feels the sensation.
