One, Two, Three -- It's a Puppet!

Put finger puppets on a few fingers of each hand. When your baby is alert and paying attention, hold your hands curled up (hiding the puppets) and then raise a finger or two on one hand, then the other. Go slowly so she follows with her eyes. You may notice your baby beginning to try to anticipate which puppet will pop up next. (Funny voices are optional!)
