Place your baby in a comfortable spot, can be a cozy play mat, or on your lap. Lift up the baby’s hands to their face and pull it away gently but quickly and say “peek-a-boo”! Do this a couple of times, then do it to your own body. Lift your hands to your face, and remove quickly saying peek-a-boo! If this frightens your baby, you can do the same thing but slide your hands down your face slowly.
