Could baby brain games help your baby? Our parenting expert, Deborah McNelis, and author of BrainInsights Packets for young children is here to show us how. Read on to find out more.
Deborah writes as if your baby is speaking:
"Showing me how much you love me through fun interactions makes connections in the emotional part of my brain."
Perhaps you already delight your infant with "Peek-a-boo." At first use your hands, then put an object like a book in front of your face then take it away and say, "Peek-a-boo." Smile the whole time.
Maybe you blow bubbles and pop them. If this enchants your baby and makes her smile or giggle, then you're connecting with her brain's positive emotions.
Deborah's Game for Your Baby's Brain:
Put one of your child's stuffed animals in a container like an oatmeal box. Add the cover. Sing a little song. (You might know "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.") When you finish singing it, take off the lid and pull out the stuffed animal. Have a fun look on your face while you do it over and over.
If your baby could talk, according to Deborah, she would say, "I will learn to expect the animal to pop out when the song is over."
I like Deborah's technique for using games to promote brain development and emotions. It's easy, fun, and creates a loving bond with your baby.
