Here’s a silly cause-and-effect game to play with your baby, one that had Veronika in fits of laughter.
First, I touched my nose, and then encouraged Veronika to reach out and do the same.
Whenever she beeped my nose, I stuck my tongue out. After a few repeats, she got the idea that her action “caused” my tongue to pop out. Add silly sound effects and your baby will love it!
Another fun one is to puff your cheeks up with air. I encouraged her to “unpop” my cheeks. When her hand brushed my cheek, I acted like the force made all the air come out.
Again, big giggles.
These kinds of cause-and-effect games are great for teaching your baby about the concept, plus reap lots of laughter as the reward.
