How many ways can you play “Peekaboo”? You can hide your eyes behind your hand, or use a hat, a napkin, or whatever is handy and then say “Peekaboo” Help your child take a turn. What can they hide behind? Saying “I see you” when one of you stops hiding should make you both laugh.

See what your child is learning

This back-and-forth game builds the connection between you and your child. As they watch your face and movements, your child is learning to trust that things (and people!) go away and come back. This is an important part of building relationships and becoming independent.
