3-Month-Old Activities

Shake and Rattle

Place a rattle in baby's hand. Help him or her shake it to make a noise.

Lap Time

Hold baby in your lap as you read to him or her. This should be a pleasant and relaxed time for both of you.

The Outdoors

Take baby outside for a stroll. Describe for baby the things that he or she sees. If the weather is warm, place a blanket on the ground and let baby lie on it while he or she experiences the sights, sounds, and smells of the outdoors.

Dancing to the Rhythm

Play music and dance to the rhythm while you are holding baby. Be sure to change your speed as you dance to songs with fast and slow tempos.
