Mirror play for babies | Mum's Grapevine

Little tots that have just started sitting up adore this clever mirror play tip that keeps them happy, develops cognitive skills and is all sorts of adorable to boot.

And all it takes is four mirrors and some imagination.

As babies vision starts to develop they become more and more fascinated by faces – particularly their own. Mirror play helps build cognitive development and self-awareness.

The fab mirror play for baby idea comes from Jessica in our Facebook Baby Group, who set up a safe space for bub to sit and stare at the cutest thing they ever did see!
