Need:
Tea towel or muslin

Toddlers love a game of peekaboo; the simple action of hiding something and making it re-appear is easy enough for your toddler to understand and exciting enough to cause plenty of giggles!

Drape the tea towel or muslin over your toddler’s head and call their name… then quickly lift the tea towel/muslin and say, “peekaboo!” with a big smile. Using their name will help them learn to recognise it, but take turns hiding your own face and theirs, and even their favourite teddy or toy.

Once your toddler gets the hang of the game, see how long you can hide things before they erupt into squeals of delight. The longer you leave it, the more exciting the game gets!
