|« Now You See It, Now You Don't!||How Our Learning Program Works »|
It's a real joy to hear your babies and toddlers laughing. As children grow, the things that make them laugh change. At 6 - 12 months, babies will laugh at you if you do unusual things, like pretending to drink from their bottle, waddling like a penguin, or making funny animal noises. Between a year and three years, children will laugh at objects used in unusual ways, such as putting your shoes on your hands, using a shoe as a telephone or balancing a book on your head. Later, from around 2 - 3 years, children will laugh at things that you say that don't make sense. You can make up words that sound funny, or misname objects, calling a cat a dog, a car an aeroplane and so on. Making children laugh helps them to build confidence in the world, and will bring you the greatest pleasure. See what makes your children laugh today...!
