Peek a boo
Age: baby, parent
Skill for Bub: Just for fun, Mind builder
Different ways to play this well known kids game.
Babies of all ages love playing peek-a-boo games – and there are lots of different ways to play. You can use a tissue or a small blanket or anything light and breathable that won’t endanger your child.
Facing your baby, place your hands or tissue in front of your face, and partially covering your face say, “where’s mummy”
Then move your hands and say, “peek-a-boo”.
Do this several times before placing a tissue on baby’s head, then put it on and pull it off saying, “peek-a-boo”. Put the tissue on baby’s head and see if she will pull it off herself – keep pulling it off until she learns to do it herself.
As the baby gets older she will initiate the game herself by pulling a blanket over her head or crawling under the sheets.
