Peek-a-boo! Fun to Play with Babies & They're Learning Too


Peek-a-boo is an important game for young children as they’re still learning the concept of object permanence. They're also experiencing safe separation as babies genuinely believe that their loved one has disappeared when they can't see them anymore. You might hear in this video baby E gasp when the playsilk covers him and then he squeals in delight when he sees his loved one again. As parents we naturally play peek-a-boo with our kids. I remember when my kids would laugh with delight when we played with our silks.

This game is great for siblings or multiple adults as you can switch up who surprises the baby when the playsilk floats away.⁣

If you don’t know this song here are the lyrics. Enjoy singing with your children.

Please shine down on me. ⁣

Oh Mr Sun, Sun, ⁣
Mr golden Sun, ⁣
Hiding behind those trees. ⁣

These children are asking you, ⁣
To please come out so we can play with you. ⁣

Oh Mr Sun, Sun, ⁣
Mr golden Sun, ⁣
Please shine down on me. ⁣ ⁣

I’m expecting my 7th baby in about three months. I know the other children and I will definitely be playing lots of games with our silks with our new little one!


Perfect for peek a boo now and endless possibilities as they grow!!


The minis are adorable and so perfect for the smaller babies. We love our silk and our teether too


We have a yellow silk, and our 21-month-old loves it so much! She loves using it to play “boo mama,” in which she covers her face with it and “sneaks” up behind me to say, “BOO!!” 😂 It’s also an indispensable accessory for her dance parties- she loves waving it around :) She also uses it to tuck her stuffed animals in at night. Thank you for all the joy you’ve brought with your beautiful silk!


Yes, peek-a-boo is a family
Favorite that easily allows all 3 of ours kids to connect! My 6 and 3 yr olds get giggles from our 8 mo old and you can see the glee and pride in their little faces and hear the joy in their own laughter!
