Mirror play can be loads of fun for little ones. Your toddler will love this silly, no-mess game of drawing on a mirror.

Mirror Play


  • 15 to 30 minutes


  • Mirror
  • Dry-erase pen


  1. You can make yourself look silly with new features without any mess if you try this activity. Stand very still in front of a mirror and use the dry-erase pen to add features on your reflections by drawing on it.
  2. You may want to add freckles, red hair, a clown hat, or a big nose.


  • Make your child's reflection into an animal face.
  • Squeeze close together and do features on both of your face at the same time.
