May 21, 2013 at 9:54 AMSpray shaving cream on his high chair tray and let him doodle. It is beginning writing. Use whip cream for even more fun.
May 21, 2013 at 9:56 AMUse his snacks to learn colors. Have each day be one color. On Monday have vanilla wafers, bananas, yellow pepper and milk colored yellow or lemonade. Tuesday do apples, red m&ms, etc...
May 21, 2013 at 9:58 AMYou can practice making patterns with his blocks, plastic animals, or snacks. That is basic math like in preschool. He may not get more than the ababab patter right now but it is great for critical thinking.
May 21, 2013 at 10:00 AMLay colored paper on the floor and give him a fly swatter. Call out colors and have him smack them. Babies love that. You can use pictures of animals, Letts, or numbers. Anything you want. 8)

Mem has some great ideas.
Have him help you sort socks & then make a game out of tossing them in a basket (he will learn matching & coordination, colors, size, etc.)
Make homemade playdoh & mold letters, numbers, shapes, use cookie cutters to make other things.
