If you have a large mirror on a wall, lift older babies up so that they can see themselves.
Playing with mirrors helps children to:
- Try out different expressions and movements
- Look at themselves very carefully
- Explore their own body language
- Try out different moods and feelings in a playful way
- enjoy pretending
And that's just from an everyday mirror......which provides a whole lot of learning.
CHILDREN should not be left unattended with the mirror. This activity is for children and parents to try together while interacting an communicating through play.
