Babies aren't able to clap until they are almost a year old - clapping requires greater coordination than you might think! From 24 months, babies are able to participate in clapping games. Encourage your kids to clap along to the rhythm of a rhyme, or to repeat a rhythm back to you. You can also experiment with different types of clap - have your toddler clap their hands on their legs, rather than just clapping hands together; or clap your hands against your children's hands. Clapping games can be great to keep your kids occupied for brief periods, especially as you dont need any equipment and can play such games anywhere!
