Make Believe is a very fun baby activity that will help build your baby's social awareness and creativity. While you may feel silly playing make believe, babies tend to love this activity. This is an activity you can continue to play with your baby through his toddler years.
You may already engage in many Make Believe activities. Just think of the many things you routinely do each day. For example, you can have an imaginary phone call with your baby or where you answer the phone and say it's for him. Or you can have a imaginary tea party and meal with your baby. You can even sit with your baby at the computer and let him type, encouraging his "work". Use your creativity, but it does not have to be complicated. Your baby will learn to imitate you, so why not make a game of it?
