When my son was 6 months (pretty much as soon as he could sit on his own, I started making him treasure baskets like this one: http://sewliberated.typepad.com/sew_liberated/2009/10/treasure-basket.html (that's someone else's blog, not mine). He would just turn the objects over and over in his hands. I could actually do something non-baby-related for 45 minutes! It was good for both of us.
