  • At 14 months my daughter was coloring, have you started crafts with him? All sorts of simple things you can make & the new supplies will stimulate his imagination.

  • Gross motor play if you can get out is a lot of fun so walking/running, riding toys, kicking and throwing balls, etc. Shape sorters, reading stories, cause and effect toys, blocks, pots and pans...the world is full of wonderful things to explore and do. :)

  • Me and my 16 month old play hide a seek. I will sit him in the kitchen and then run to the living room and hide and i jump out and he thinks it is so funny and we do this over and over again. I just hide in different spots so he comes in the living room thinking i was were i hid last time and I'm not.

  • Teach him his ABC's - I've been singing the ABC's to my kids since they wetre born and now at 1 & 2 they sing it with me.
    play with wooden blocks - my daughter likes me to stack them for her to knock down. My son likes to stack with me as high as we can get it.
    teach him to count - my 2 yr old already counts to 10 and is learning how to count to 20. I started when he was barely one on a road trip to occupy him. Using my fingers to simulate each number.
    read to him -
    So crafts
    Roll the ball back and forth
    Use riding/walking toys
    Play chase
    Have him help you make a baked treat
    Color or paint
    Play with Playdough
    Build Forts
    Watch movies/Educational TV programs (PBS)

  • Coloring, story time, rolling a ball back and forth, singing songs, ABC time, maybe even just some quiet time where you sit together and mommy reads quietly while baby reads or plays quietly.
