Copying the cat
You don't have to leave home to teach your baby the sounds of animals - especially if you have a pet. Next time your cat kicks in, you can mimic her miaow to the baby. We are sure that your little one will have a lot of fun listening to this sound from you!
Chirps and roars
You can also imitate the sounds - and behavior - of other animals. Visit the zoo with your child and when you are out of the lion cage, take out a loud roar and caress your little one with your "lion's feet"! You can do something similar to other garden creatures: sing like birds, waving your wings, or crawl like a snake!
Turn your little one's toys into good friends by imitating their voices. Show them their stuffed puppy and cheer them up, or have the puppy fill them with sweet kisses.
If your child's blanket or quilt has animal drawings, make the appropriate sound when your toddler crawls on a particular animal. If you do this often, you will find that your toddler will quickly begin to grasp the game and associate their movements with the animals they hear you mimicing.
In addition to teaching them animal sounds, these activities bring your child closer to their mom. Strong mother-child emotional bonds are beneficial in shaping the character of children and create independent and co-operative personalities.
