New Activity: Where's My Toy?

By playing games like hiding familiar toys so your baby can find them, she begins to understand that things are still there, even when she can’t see them (object permanence). Important emotional skills develop through activities like this one!


You will need:
  • A chiffon scarf, a face cloth, one of your baby’s toys


Enjoy this more with Comfort, Play & Teach™:


  • Adding fun hide-and-seek games to playtime helps your baby to feel reassured that things are still there, even when she cannot see them. Praise her as she becomes more able to search for and find hidden objects.



  • Show your baby a toy and then partially hide it under a scarf or cloth. He will be excited to find it as he pulls the cloth away! This hide-and-seek game builds his confidence and thinking skills as he spends time playing with you.



  • Completely hide the toy under a cloth, to make the game a little more challenging. This will help your baby to reason and problem-solve and feel proud of these emerging skills.
