At What Age Does a Baby Learn to Click/Snap her Fingers?

by Jamie-Lee
(Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

This is a silly question, but my baby is only just turned 8 months old and already clicks her fingers IN TIME to music!!
Do you know the average or earliest age that babies/children do this? I’ve tried “googling” for the answer… even “Guiness Book of Records” failed to answer my question.

Many thanks,

When Can Babies Snap Fingers? Let’s Make A Survey!

Actually, no I don’t know the average age for being able to snap fingers, but I’ve never heard of a baby that snaps her fingers so early and even in time to music! I even asked around among some other moms that I know, but I think your daughter is quite unique! It sounds hilarious!

Maybe the next generation Australian Rock Star..? :-)

I found a video clip on Youtube with a 9 months old baby snapping finger. It is not in time with any music, but it is still cute!

Have a look at the video here:

8 1/2 month learned to snap
by: Jen


I’d love to know this answer. I can remember when I learned and yet my daughter displaying the act tonight was just amazing. I had no clue that a bay this young could snap fingers and I can’t find anything on. But she is mimicking us and excited she was doing so. VERY exciting!

8 Month old snapping fingers

by: Rachel


Our 8 month old daughter started “snapping her fingers” two days ago and it is hysterical! She does this when we sing to her and when we dance. It is a wonder of what babies are able to do.

8 month old also snapped his fingers

by: Anonymous


I was fascinated to discover other babies have also discovered snapping their fingers at 8 months. My son used to snap his fingers often when he was 8 months I was able to catch it on video. He did this until about 18 months or less. Now at three I wondered if he can still do not and it is very difficult for him, but when he was eight months it was almost like an automatic response. I would be curious to know if other babies keep this talent or somehow forget later?
