Peek A Boo Songs are one of the first games that you can play with your baby and they’re such great fun! There are many Peek A Boo songs to choose from and everyone will have their particular favourites, but they all share the same basic principle of hiding your face while you sing the song and then peeking out to surprise each other at the end.
Where is *Amy? Where is *Amy?
Where is she? Where is she?
What can she be doing? What can she be doing?
Hiding from me! Hiding from me!
(build up the anticipation before you pull the scarf off and call out) “ahh…….BOO”!
Sing to the tune of Frère Jacques and insert each child’s own name at the *
Babies just love the sense of anticipation in these songs, and they’re great for connecting and communicating with little ones before they can talk. And of course, great fun can be had by building the suspense up to a peak before you finally say ‘BOO’!
These songs always become firm favourites, as you’ll notice with all the giggles, squeals and kicking. Watch out for this as your cue to finally reveal your child on the ‘BOO’!
Chiffon scarves work well for draping over their heads, they’re pretty and soft, and the children can still see through them and breathe easily. But once they’ve got the idea of the game, you’ll find they’ll want to play peek a boo behind more or less anything!
Peek A Boo Songs For Babies
And babies just love playing peek a boo! It’s a game that never gets old!
By practicing songs and rhymes, small children are developing much more than just language, music and memory skills. They’ll also be developing their imagination and ability to empathise and express emotion which is a great way to help with communication between mother and baby.
