>Play peek-a-boo with a baby. Babies love to see people disappear and then reappear.
Cover your face with your hands (disappear–the baby can’t see your face) and then open your hands to show your face (appear–the baby can see you again) and say, “Peek-a-boo!” The baby will laugh and smile.
Make this a family activity: See who can make the baby laugh the hardest.
This activity promotes empathy and communication skills.
