Kids are indeed a blessing from heaven. As soon as your son reaches his first year, he will be more aware of his surroundings and have a deep interest in the world around him.
Curious, he moves around touching, feeling, and tasting whatever catches his attention. Pushing buttons, repeated actions, and throwing toys are some things he may do out of inquisitiveness.
Creativity in children can be fostered further by allowing them to play one toy at a time. While most of the interactions happen between parents or caregivers, children are likely to play alongside other kids with no interactions happening.
Basic word patterns such as “mama” and “papa” are well-articulated, and repetition of heard sounds or melodies is also prominent.
Children this age also learn through their senses. What they hear, touch, see, smell, and taste helps them establish experiences and knowledge on how things work.
Age-appropriate toys for this age are attractive, colorful, melodic, or enhance motor skills such as pounding or drawing. Pretend to play toys such as tool sets, costumes, and toy cars are also ideal for 1-year-old boys. Toys sets with smaller parts will require parental supervision to avoid choking.
