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 son loves when I cover him with his play silk and then lift it up and back down like a parachute. We also love imagining it’s a watering hole for his wooden animals. So many uses!


I was just playing peekaboo using our Sarah’s Silks with my youngest daughter! My oldest loves to use them as capes or as the water and sand for her indoor beach days. 💛


My daughter is 3 and still enjoys this game sometimes when we’re having some downtime cuddling. :)


We love to play peek a boo with our silks! Giggles every time! A new favorite is bath time bubbles with them. They move so beautifully in the water. Lastly just laying underneath the starry sky silk and watching the wind billow it ever so gently. We love our silks!

What a darling idea! And the silks feel delightful on baby’s skin.
