Here are Thomas and Jocelyn hanging out in Norman. They are two months apart and quite a cute couple!
Apparently, Thomas and Josie became fast friends because here she is giving him kisses on his head. I wonder what he thought?
Appropriate for: 8 to 18 months
Skills developed: Understanding of object permanence, fine motor
What you'll need: Cardboard, pens, scraps of cloth, scissors, glue
Remember that page in Pat the Bunny where you can lift up a slip of cloth and see Paul's face? Taking this as inspiration, make your own peekaboo pictures, using different characters and facial expressions.
On several sturdy pieces of cardboard, draw simple sketches of people, each with a happy, sad, or grumpy expression. Or cut out pictures from a magazine instead. Then cut rectangular pieces of cloth a little taller than each figure. Use glue to attach the cloth just above each picture, creating a flap that lifts up. When the glue is dry, show your baby how to raise the flaps. Make up a story about the person underneath, and end it with your baby "finding" the face.
