Who’s That Baby?

Baby Toddler Playtime

Hold a mirror up to your child’s face and ask, —“Who’s that baby?” Then say their name. Pull the mirror away and watch them. Do they smile? Wave their hands and feet? Do they reach out for the mirror? Comment on what they’re telling you with their actions.

See what your child is learning

This game is a fun way to help your child learn to focus and pay attention as they notice you and the mirror. They’re also learning about how to communicate with others as you respond to their sounds and movements. This will help them learn to talk in the future.
