You might not think you can do magic, but your child will look at you like you’re the next David Blaine when you perform this simple trick.

What you need

Teddy or cuddly toy

Tea towel


Developing understanding of new concepts

Teaching by example

Emotionally bonding 

Having fun

How long will it take?

15 mins

What to do

  1. Get your child’s attention by waving Teddy in front of them, then cover him with the tea towel…he’s gone!
  2. Wait a minute: whip the tea towel away…and there he is again! Children think that when they can’t see something, it’s gone forever. So when he comes back, it’s a lovely surprise.
