Forget peek-a-boo, Veronika is old enough now for her first version of hide-and-seek! We enlisted big brother Travis’s help for this one, an eager participant.
He thought it was hilarious to trot out of sight. Veronika follows him like a puppy, so I knew she would follow once he disappeared from sight.
As added incentive, have the older child call out (Veronika’s not yet sophisticated enough for real finding). When she “found” him, he yelled “peekaboo!” and they both erupted in laughter.
They both wanted to play this over and over!
If you don’t have an older sibling (or just want to repeat the game while playing with baby solo), then a doll or teddy bear can be your hider.
Can Veronika find dolly? She sure can.
This time, I supplied the hearty, “Peek-a-boo!”
A super-cute round of hide-and-seek.
