Peek a Boo!

Play interactive baby sign language games like "peek a boo" and "pat-a-cake" with your baby. These are great turn-taking games and the ability to take turns during a conversation is an essential building block to learning language.

Play face-to-face with your baby and when you've played or sung "peek a boo" and "pat-a-cake” game once, stop and wait to see what she does. Sign and say, "You want MORE" (sign at least what is capitalized). You can also substitute your child's proper or nickname instead of the word "you".

Play the game, pause and wait to see what she does. If she doesn't sign back, sign and say "MORE" again and play the game again. Repetition is the key to learning so as long as you are both having fun, continue play this little signing game!

Please share your signing games and stories with our WeeHands group! Visit www.weehands.com for more signing fun!
