Make your watching more interactive by talking to your baby through what you see. It’s as easy as naming the cuteness you see onscreen and pointing out objects. If he is a little restless place him in your lap and bounce along together to the music.

Remember the joy of banging on pots and pans or the squeak of grass when you blew on it as a kid? Today is World Music Day, so it’s time to make some noise! Making music is an awesome way to play with your baby (and kick start your own creativity by turning almost any household item into an instrument). Here are a few starters:
