Sensory Play

You can use rice and pasta for a fun activity with your little one. You can pour rice or pasta in a large bowl. And you can put some little toys into the bowl and hide them into the rice or pasta. And while your little one trying to find the toys, they can develop their skills with this sensory plays. But while they are playing please make sure to watch them.

Bathtime Activity

You can use fun activities for developing your little ones motor skills. After 10 months we started giving our little ones hands plastic cups at her bathtimes. And we put in these cups clean water, so that she practiced drinking water. After a while later we saw that she started drinking water perfectly in the bathtub, so we started using plastic cups at her meals. And around 14 months we switched to shot glasses. Because they were perfectly fitting in our little girls hands. Now she is 18 months and she is enjoying drinking water by herself. But we are still watching her for sure.

Ice Pops

These ice pops are great for summer. And they are really easy to prepare. You just need a ice pop maker, fruit of your choice, yogurt and a blender. If you would like to you can prepare the ice pops with just only fruits. But I prefer to prepare them with yogurt. 


4 tablespoons of  homemade yogurt 
1 mango (You can use any fruit of your choise.)

  1. Puree mango using a blender. 
  2. Combine the pureed mangoes and yogurt in a cup. 
  3. Pour the mixture into the ice pop makers.
  4. Refrigerate the ice pop makers. 
  5. After 4-5 hour they are ready. Your little one will like them as mine :)

Cranberry Jam

I love the jams for making homemade ice creams. One of my favorite jam is cranberry jam.

2 lbs  cranberries
2 lbs sugar

1 lemon juice (If you don't like the sour taste don't add the lemon juice.)

  1. After washing the cranberries, place them in a pan with 2 lbs sugar, 1 lemon juice and 1/2 cup of water and cook over a low heat, stir occasionally. 
  2. Cook until thickened.
  3. I like whole cranberry jam but if you would like to you can puree the cranberries using a blender. 
  4. If you like to blend it up into puree, return the blended cranberries back to the stove and cook until thickened again.
  5. Your jam is ready so you can jar it up.

  3. Puree 1/4 cup of spinach using a blender. 
  4. Combine the pureed spinach with the egg and milk in a bowl.
