six object permanence games

If something can't be seen, heard, or touched, does it still exist?  Jean Piaget emphasized the importance of object permanence in his theory of cognitive development.  (Read more on Wikipedia.)  Here are a handful of fun games to play with your baby that will strengthen his or her understanding of object permanence!

1. Ball under a cup


2. Caterpillar in an apple


3. Ring in a box


4. Stuffed animal under a blanket


5. The ball drop


6. Peek-a-boo!!!
