Age: suitable from around 9 months and beyond
Time needed : under 5 minutes
Equipment needed: nothing!
Sit face to face with your baby or toddler (just after a meal can be a good opportunity if your wee one is in a high chair as you’ll be at the same level).
Say something like “copy cat!” and start to mimic what your child is doing – facial expressions, hand movements and any noises or words she says.
It might take her a little while to realise what you’re doing! Lots of toddlers and babies find this simple game very funny, and some might start to copy you back.
Hope you and your family enjoy it 🙂
