In brief: Interactive games

Singing songs with movements will help them develop language skills and lets them practice imitating you- which babies love! pouring, filling and dumping is always fun, and looking at pictures and reading books are great for quiet time.
Make sure you allow them plenty of floortime to practice crawling and cruising.

In brief: Imitation

At this age, your baby is cruising.
Give him plenty of space for that. Also, your baby will want to copy you. It's a good time to play "follow the leader". Your baby will also want to pour and fill things. Give your baby buckets and containers. Your baby may become very attached to a certain toy/stuffed animal/blanket at this age too.

In brief: Floor time

The most important thing for any parent-child relationship is time spent together. For playing with a 10 month old (and most ages), keep it simple.
Use the floor as your play space and interact with your child via plain language and love. Show them how their books and toys work and watch as they try.
