Here is a fun way of playing with your baby and it is much like peek-a-boo, which they all know and love. I like to call it the disappearing act as they see an object appear and disappear in a container. It taps into developing their understanding of object permanence, so the object hasn’t actually disappeared but is hiding behind something.
Possum (10 months) plays with this handmade toy like she is seeing it for the first time. It’s because she is still learning about object permanence and that things don’t necessarily disappear because they are out of sight. I hope you find time to make one of these toys for your baby.
