PLAY A GAME: Peekaboo!
Peekaboo is a classic favorite with babies: First Mommy's there, then Mommy's gone, and then she's back again. Sometime around 6 or 7 months, babies start to understand that objects continue to exist even if they can't see them. Use your hands or hold a blanket or towel infront of your face, whisk it away and call, "Peekaboo!"
Developmental skills: Object permanence; social development.
SING A SONG: To Market, To Market
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
home again, home again, jiggety jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
home again, home again, jiggety jog.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
home again, home again, marketing's done.
