  1. Peek-a-boo is a classic game to play with children of all ages, especially for babies. Slowly hide your face behind your hands, a blanket, or an object, and then pop your face out and say, “Peek…!”

  2. Watch as your baby will start to anticipate your face coming out. Your baby will not know that you are hiding, but he’ll surely be happy to see you when you pop out. Your baby will smile and giggle when you say “Boo!”  She may even try to hide, too.

  3. This is a great activity to repeat several times because it’s quick and easy to do. Best of all, you can do it anywhere!

This activity helps your child develop fine motor skills, listening skills, language skills, sensory skills, early math skills, and social-emotional skills.
