How to play

How it Plays
Gather a selection of toys that make noise, such as squeaky ducks, toys with bells, rattles, and musical instruments. Start by showing your baby or toddler a simple squeaky toy. Give it a good noisy squeeze, then cover it with a dish towel or small blanket and let her uncover it. Next, cover it again and make it squeak while it's still invisible. This is always good for a laugh. It also motivates your child to wiggle, crawl, or walk over to uncover it. Trade the toy for a rattle or a musical shaker and shake it, again while it's covered by the towel. Try the same thing with a toy that makes a crinkly or crunchy noise (you can make your own with a ball of tinfoil or waxed paper).

If your child is walking or crawling, turn the game into musical hide-and-seek. Hide with a toy behind a sofa or chair, then make the noise and let her find you. If the toy is loud enough, you can hide in a closet or behind a door. Just remember that the noise of the toy may be overcome by her peals of laughter.

What You'll Need

  •   Five or six toys that sound off: squeaky toys, playthings with bells, rattles, musical instruments
  •   Dishtowel
  •   Aluminum foil or waxed paper

  • Learning and Growing
    Developmental experts advocate the use of rattles and squeaky toys because they teach hand-eye coordination and cause-and-effect relationships. The hide-and-seek aspect stimulates your child's cognitive development as she listens for the sound, then tries to locate you.
