Charming Charades Baby Activity Worksheet



Your baby will love this game of “charades” where you act out family and friends. This activity is ideal for babies 9-12 months old as they go through the “stranger danger” phase. They may not want to spend time with anyone besides you, but this can remind both of you about how many people you all know and love. You can also adapt this game to use words to describe the person instead of acting them out.

Even though your baby can’t “guess”, watching you act will engage and delight them. Watch to see how they respond- if they seem to like something you are doing in your acting, do it more. If they seem frightened or uninterested, try something else.
