We usually build this fort in bed because Baby Bear still stumbles a lot while walking so we want to make sure she can have cushioned falls. What we do is put Baby Bear inside the fort and play peek-a-boo with her. We go all around the 4 sides and she tries to guess where we will ‘pop’ up next. 🙂 Our latest twist to this game is I get an extra pillow and hide behind the pillow while simultaneously moving. This usually prompts her to try to ‘escape’ from the fort in order to catch me. 🙂
We also play peek-a-boo here and we get her to go inside and outside of her tent. This activity is a bit tiring (for both the baby and the parent) but never fails to get her squealing with laughter so that’s all that matters. I see many tea parties and reading sessions with her dollies inside in the near future. I can’t wait to see what will spark her creativity and imagination. Definitely one of the things worth looking forward to.
Good luck with your Day 2 Challenge 🙂 Let me know how it goes!
