Daytime activities for an older infant

I have a active seven month old who has pretty much given up on long naps she hardly sleeps thrice during daytime for 20-30 mins. That means I have to entertain her the rest of the 9-10 hours that she is awake. Would love some fun and new activities suggestions. We do all the normal toys, parks, books, peekaboo and pool playtime. Is there anything more I can add ? Can a 7 month old play with crayons or paint ? She likes to taste everything so I am not sure ?

    Sure.. crayons are great.. she may try to eat the, but you can gently pull her hand away.. and if she enjoys a little.. it's ok.. paints are probably more up to you for the mess.. these things still will only let 20 minutes maybe..

    I would recommend for you.. to make a routine for yourself with her.. just to make the day seem less long.. you know like snack time, craft time, book time, puzzle time, video time, walk, lunch, park, snack..

    I always found when I had a routine.. and certain things scheduled that it broke the day up and seemed more.. purposeful.. and less like one long 9 hour day..
