    making funny faces

    Hi,

    Is there an idiomatic expression for making funny or happy faces in front of babies to make them happy? Something parents might often do?

    Re: making funny faces

    I would argue that "making faces" is an idiomatic expression. I'm not aware of another expression specific to the situation you describe.

    You can also 'pull' faces.
