Silly Faces

Toddler Bedtime

After brushing your child’s teeth at night, play a silly game together in the mirror. Ask them to make a funny face and then imitate them. Then switch and have them imitate your silliest face. There’s no limit to how much fun you can have together!

Taking turns imitating each other gives your child practice paying attention to your silly face so that they can copy it. Paying attention helps them concentrate and focus—important skills for learning and solving problems.
