Different stages of life also call for different ways to make a child laugh. What’s funny will be different for a baby and a toddler. Scholastica shares useful tips on how to bring on the laughter from little dinos of any age:

  • Babies: sing songs with lively movement you can do with your baby;  surprise your little one with a stuffed toy like an adorable dinosaur puppet and “suddenly discover” it from his pillows or other toys to make him/her laugh.
  • Toddlers: create a warm and inviting environment where kids can feel safe expressing their sense of humor. The author, Susan Miller EdD encourages the use of puppets which you can use to create funny scenes to get the kids laughing.

A cute Brachiosaurus puppet they’ll adore will help do the trick. They can also use these to help express their own funny bones too!

  • Preschoolers: teach kids the positive and negative kinds of humor to help them understand how to wisely enjoy it; reading funny stories and rhymes are good teaching instruments.
