Mirror Peekaboo

Baby Playtime

Do you have a mirror in your house? Hold your child and move in and out of the mirror, saying “Hello!” when you look in the mirror together and “Goodbye!” when you move away. Go fast and slow. Do they wave in the mirror or ask for more? Follow their cues.

See what your child is learning

This version of “Peekaboo” helps your child practice paying attention, while learning in a fun way that things and people go away and come back. This understanding provides them with a foundation for positive and trusting relationships throughout their life, starting with you!
