A mirror

As your toddler is becoming more aware of themselves and the people around them, it can be fun to point out their reflection in a mirror.

In fact, any reflective surface will do; stand in front of it and ask them to wave to you, or point to themselves. Talk about their appearance and the colour of their clothes. Try holding up different things, like their favourite teddy or blanket and see if they recognise its reflection.

Pretty soon, they’ll learn to recognise themselves and understand what a mirror does.
