Introduction

As far as I know, most of the babies like to play in the kitchen. They want to explore each and everything and do something or the other with available items. By doing so, they are giving us a signal to note and observe them. From there on, we can very well set up the appropriate activities based on their interest. Both these are activities happened by observation. While he was in the kitchen, he has started to do some play, and based on that; I have set up an activity. Eager to know, what are the activities which we did? Scroll through.
