10 things to Do with Your 10-Month-Old

Kids are very active at this age, so it’s important to keep them busy. You can do many activities with them to make them busy and have fun. Here are 10 things to do with your 10-month-old.

1. Play catch with a balloon

Play catch with a balloon and teach your 10-month-old how it is done. You may need some help from an older sibling or parent in this instance since most kids under two years old cannot hold onto toys well enough yet but even if they do manage themselves well enough for playtime purposes bring along someone else who can be on hand as back up just in case things go awry.

2. Chase bubbles

Chase bubbles are fun to play with! They’ll love chasing them, and you can make your own at home or buy some from the store. It’s a great activity for both of you on sunny days when it is warmer outside – I recommend filling up an empty dish soap bottle halfway in water & adding about 1 tablespoon each (or less) of dishwashing detergent followed by 3-4 drops bubblegum/scented oils such as vanilla extract if desired. This will give you a nice big batch of bubbles to play with that will last quite a while & if stored in a cool, dry place can be used multiple times.

3. Go on a bug hunt

The best way to explore nature and learn about bugs is with an exploring game. Start by looking around your house for those little crawling creatures, then go outside in search of new species! You must wear gloves when handling any type of bug because they can carry diseases like Malaria which would make me very sad if I got sick from playing this activity all day long but don’t worry-I’ve got tons of ideas about how we’ll find some great substitutes so our adventures won’t lack anything super cool. Might as well get started now since summer break starts next week for most people & what better way to spend it than by getting outside & enjoying some quality time with your kiddo while they’re still young enough to want to hang out with you?

4. Go on a picnic

For some good old-fashioned fun, go on a picnic. Get out there and enjoy the outdoors with your loved ones! You’ll be surprised how much time can pass by in just one day when you’re together enjoying each other’s company over food that has been prepared specifically for these moments – don’t forget plenty of ice-cold drinks too so everyone stays hydrated throughout their adventure (and maybe even finds themselves talking more than usual). A great activity to do for any age group is planned pique; it doesn’t matter if they are turning one or 100 years old.

5. Play with Play-Doh

Get your creative juices flowing with some colorful Play-Doh. This is a great activity for rainy days when you can’t go outside. Plus, it’s easy to clean up and doesn’t make too much of a mess – perfect in every way really except that one little detail about the dough being stretchy enough yet firm at first touch (which means less risk they’ll get hurt). Your 10-month-old will have hours’ worth of both frustration & satisfaction while they spend their time trying to figure out how to make all sorts of shapes, letters, numbers, and creatures with this toy; it never gets old.

6. Do some arts and crafts

Get your hands on some art supplies and let him explore his artistic side. There are so many different types of crafts that can be done together, such as painting or colorizing pictures. You might even want to get them started with clay sculpting – it’s a great way for toddlers who love being creative but don’t yet know how all the tools work to do something independently without any help at all (you’ll need supervision though).

7. Cook together

This is a great activity to do with your 10-month-old if you want to teach them about cooking and measuring ingredients. It’s also a fun way to spend some quality time together in the kitchen, and you can even let him help out with dinner! Just be sure to keep an eye on him, so he doesn’t make a mess or hurt himself.

8. Read together

Reading is not only a great way to bond with your child, but it’s also a great way to teach them about the world around them. You can start by reading books that are specifically designed for infants and toddlers. These books usually have bright colors and simple pictures that will capture your child’s attention. As they get older, you can start reading more complex books with them.

9. Go for a walk

This is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise. Walking is also a great way to bond with your child while they’re in their stroller. You can talk to them about the things you see along the way and point out different things to them. If you don’t have a stroller, you can still take them for a walk in a baby carrier.

10. Play hide-and-seek

This is a great way to teach your child about hiding and seeking. It’s also a great way to get them moving. You can start by hiding behind a piece of furniture and then progress to hiding in other places around the house. As they get older, you can make the game more challenging by hiding in harder-to-find places.


These are just a few ideas of things you can do with your 10-month-old. There are endless possibilities when it comes to spending quality time with your child. The most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the time you spend together.
