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 “Guinness Book of Records” failed to answer my question.
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 the 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..? :-)
A quick Youtube search reveals some babies at around 10 months of age that snap their fingers.
Have a look at the video here:
Considering that babies start developing their pincer grasp at around 8-month-old, I can see why it would be possible for an 8-month-old baby to learn to snap their fingers. Snapping fingers is a very similar finger movement to the pincer grasp. But in addition to the pincer grasp, it also takes strength.
Kicking or moving or moving their body in time to music, is something that babies can develop early – already during their first months of living.
But… the combination – to have developed the pincer grasp movement into snapping fingers and doing it in time to music at this young age, sounds quite unique. :-)
