Where Is Baby's Nose?

Babies love to look at faces!  Place a small, unbreakable mirror on the floor to look at with your baby (always monitor your baby closely around mirrors). Point to baby's nose, then say, "nose." Do this again, only pointing to their nose in the mirror. Ask your baby: Where is your nose? Now try it with other body parts.


SING

(point to the body part as you sing it)

Head and shoulders,

Head and shoulders,

Eyes and ears and mouth and nose,
Head and shoulders,
