Animal sounds!

Animal sounds!

At this age, your baby's curiosity has begun to wane. They now want to know what's going on beyond their immediate surroundings, so this is the time to discover more animal sounds and voices together - whether you are imitating a beloved pet or roaring at a zoo. You can also use the toys and covers of your child to get to know the various sounds that animals make.

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!

Plush friends

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.

Animal bedding

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.
