Hide a musical toy near your baby where she can’t see it and watch her search for it.

First show your baby the noisy toy you are going to hide. Then, while she isn’t looking, place it somewhere nearby but out of sight. Very young babies will turn towards the sound, while mobile babies will search the toy out. Either way, your baby will be using her listening skills to solve a mystery!
