Playing hairdressers


Have you noticed your little one wanting to help out more with everything? Why not let them do your hair today. First, demonstrate how to brush your hair and then encourage them to do it too. Repeat ‘brush, brush’. Dedicating time to play with your baby is so important as it’s essential for brain development, and for learning how to build emotional connections.

What you’ll need

  • Brush
  • Fun, colourful clips or hair accessories


  • Play time helps your baby to build self-confidence as you give praise for small achievements
  • Language and communication skills will grow as you tackle tasks together
  • Understanding how to care for and share with others is learnt through group activities
  • Motor skills
