2.5 yr old and 9 month old playing together

I'm going to be babysitting my nephew from out of town for a week. He's never been around a child younger than him and seems really nervous around my 9 month old. He doesn't talk and kind of just freezes up like hes scared. Any ideas on a game to help loosen them up or an explanation? I haven't tried anything yet.

  • Maybe try a movie they will both like and sit with them, try to talk to them both and just slowly let him get use to the baby.
