6+ | Smiling Reflection


While relaxing with your baby, hold a small mirror up to their face. Look in the mirror together, and name the parts of the face as you point to them. Depending on their age, they may even reach out to touch the “baby” in the mirror.

The Science 

Mirror play is an engaging activity that strengthens visual tracking in young babies, and also helps to foster self-awareness, curiosity and social connection.
