Peek-a-Boo

…I see you!

photoMy favorite game right now?

Playing peek-a-boo with my friends and family! I’m always eager to engage in peek-a-boo games because it’s so much fun! What seems so simple to adults – here one second, gone the next – intrigues and delights our developing minds!

The Successful Parent website explains how peek-a-boo games teach concepts like object constancy – the idea that things, people or places exist even when they are not in sight – and separation-individuation, where toddlers begin to see their selves as separate from mommy and daddy.

So, go ahead and indulge your toddler while nurturing their developing brain!

Happy Playing!
