Original & Wonderful Hobbies to do with your baby

Wonderful Hobbies to do with your baby

I know it can sometimes be difficult to find original hobbies to do with your baby.

Birth is one of the most wonderful moments, but of course it changes everything.

The months that follow will be filled with tears, nappies, screaming and lots and lots of mess. But there is also love, laughter and a life full of cuteness.

Babies take up a lot of your time and new mums often forget who they were before their children were born. They devote themselves body and soul to their newborn and stop thinking about their hobbies and passions.

Why is that? Well, there are some hobbies that are particularly difficult to pursue with a newborn. Tennis, for example, or dancing, or even playing a musical instrument. But even these can be practised with a bit of willpower.

However, there are some hobbies that are very easy to do with a baby. They are safe, cheap and useful for building a strong bond with your child.

Let’s see which hobbies are safe for babies.

Original Hobbies to do with your baby

Original Hobby to do with your baby

Visit an animal sanctuary

One of the best gifts you can give your baby is to raise him or her to love animals.
They can learn about the beauty and diversity of nature by visiting an animal sanctuary. If there’s one near you, don’t hesitate to donate and visit as often as you like. It’s much better than going to a zoo.

A sanctuary is a place where animals are cared for for the rest of their lives. Often they’re kept there because they’re sick or injured and couldn’t survive in the wild.

Teach your child empathy by showing them how every living thing deserves to be treated. Even if your child is just a baby, don’t forget that they are a sponge. They absorb every word you say and everything they see.

Stargazing with your baby

If you love the stars, this is the perfect hobby to do with your baby. Children are very curious, especially in the first few years of their lives.

There is so much for them to see and know, and you are their first introduction to it all.

Stargazing with your baby is not only a beautiful hobby that relaxes the mind, it’s a hobby you can do anywhere and for free!

Karaoke with your baby

Okay, okay. Your babies probably won’t know EVERY word of the song, but it’s the sentiment that counts, right?

Singing with a toddler is so much fun and will lift both your and your baby’s spirits. He can dance and laugh while you have the time of your life getting him to listen to your favourite songs.

This is one of the easiest hobbies you can do with your baby. If you play well, when he grows up he will put these songs on and think it was all his idea. Fun, isn’t it?

Painting with your baby

You’ve probably stopped enjoying your artistic self since you gave birth, and that HAS to stop. The world needs your art and so do you! Time is sometimes tight, but there is no reason why you cannot incorporate a creative hobby into your routine.

Babies love to watch you do things and you can paint in the comfort of your own home.

Of course, I don’t recommend letting your baby paint in the traditional way, but there are plenty of baby-safe paint recipes you can use. He can have fun with you and may grow up to be the artist of the century, you never know.


One of the most relaxing hobbies to do with your baby, what do I love most about crocheting? Well, it’s easy to learn and even easier to find free patterns for beautiful creations.

The materials are usually cheap, unless you choose a special yarn. So it’s possible to crochet with a baby? I think it is.

You can do it to relax while your baby goes to sleep and you can try these free baby crochet patterns for beginners.

Gardening with your baby

Gardening is one of the best hobbies to do with your baby.

It’s very healthy because it allows you to spend more time in nature and plants are very beneficial for us. How do you garden with a baby?

You can do it both outdoors and indoors.

Get some pots and plant some nice little plants to put in your baby’s room. There are many ways to involve your child in these activities and all it takes is a little imagination.

There are many original and wonderful hobbies you can do with your baby, many of which involve reading, dancing and doing puzzles.
