Check out hands on as we grow, the blog. They have a variety of activities and most of them either use materials you have at home or you can sorta look around and swap it in. It’s very hard to keep babies that age entertained and safe without being the one entertaining. As far as education, they’re simply Learning by listening and watching you. So when your cooking, give the baby some Cheerio and prop him where he can see and talk to him about what your doing, colors and shapes and why your doing it. More or less narrating yourself is what helps. Same for the grocery store or whatever else you need to do.
