The Baby Center has a great article on how to play with your baby, "20 fun, silly, development-boosting games to play with your baby." There are sections devoted to birth through three months, four to six months, seven to nine months and ten through twelve months. There is dancing, playing dress-up, reading books, exploring kitchen bowls and tools, singing in different voices.
