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.

Oh Mr Sun, Sun, ⁣
Mr golden Sun, ⁣
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. ⁣ ⁣

My 6 month old loves our silks! We play peekaboo and it’s an easy take along toy as it takes up barely any space in our bag!


My daughter is 10 months and we play peek-a-boo almost everyday and now she tries to hide her face in our playsilks. Her latest favorite thing to do is use them to hide her baby gnomes.


Peekaboo is the best with playsilks! My 5 month old had his first belly laugh when his 4 year old sister played it with him!


My daughter is obsessed with playing peekaboo with her sea playsilk! It’s is one of my biggest joys seeing her smile after a successful peekaboo


Peekaboo with playsilks is the best! My 1 year old also likes putting the playsilk on his head and roaring while he scoots after us – it’s adorable! :)
