Now that Veronika is old enough to understand a good surprise, this little bath time game was a big hit. It’s as simple as this: I showed her a toy, and then wrapped it up in her washcloth.
Where did owl go?
She eagerly grabbed at the cloth and figured out how to work her way through the layers to the owl. She looked quite pleased, although she may have enjoyed the washcloth “prize” a bit more!
As she turned her attention to a little foam bear, I pulled that one aside and made sure she saw it go into the washcloth next.
I wrapped him up… and she got to “unwrap” a present!
If you prefer a dry version of this game, babies love unwrapping their toys from wrapping paper or tissue paper. What’s old is instantly new again! Who says presents are just for birthdays?
