Peek-a-Blue!

Duration: any

Age: baby, parent

Skill for Bub: Mind Builder

summary:

A vibrant version of peek-a-boo geared to introduce your child to a rainbow of colors.

At this age, babies are just grasping the idea that things exist even when they can’t see them — a concept called object permanence. This exciting version of peek-a-boo not only develops this skill, but helps your child to learn about different colours.

  • Tape brightly colored construction paper to white pieces of paper.
  • Present your baby with the white side of the paper first. Then turn it around to reveal the color (e.g. blue) while saying, “Peek-a …” plus the name of the color (e.g. “Peek-a-blue!”)

The smiles and giggles you’ll get in return are priceless!
