Silly Face Peek-a-Boo
Age: baby, parent
Skill for Bub: Just for fun, Mind Builder
A game to surprise your child using different facial expressions.
A smile, a frown, a look of surprise — your child will love seeing all of the different kinds of faces that you can make.
Have your child face you in a seated position. Holding a small towel between the two of you to conceal your face, say, “Peek-a-boo, I see…” As you lift the towel say, “a smile!” (or the name of the facial expression).

Make lots of silly faces, too.
Encourage big siblings — who love to take the lead — to play games with baby, using emotions: “A happy face!” “An angry face!”
