Make a peek-a-boo book

Peek-a-boo isn’t just a silly game babies play. Between 5-8 months, your baby is developing “object permanence.”  She’s learning that even when you go into another room, you’ll be back!

This is what you'll need.

  1. Pieces of cardboard, about 8-inches square (We used old file folders.)
  2. Fabric squares cut slightly smaller than the cardboard pieces
  3. Pictures cut from magazines or photos (Fun!)
  4. Glue, hole punch and yarn

What to do

  1. Make a flap on the cardboard by attaching a piece of fabric with glue or tape (or by punching holes and weaving the yarn through).
  2. Under each flap, glue a picture or photo.
  3. Play peek-a-boo together. Ask, “Can you find the face?”  “What’s under here?” “Can you lift this flap?

The more animated and excited you get, the more motivated your baby will be to play!
