Sensory Time

Painting! I discovered this awesome project for babies on Read, Sing, Play blog. I simply took a sandwich bag, a small cardboard paper, three dollops of paint (red, blue, and white), and duct tape to create mini projects for each baby. Each baby was able to mash their own creations

Here are just a few of their creations!

Fun Rhyme With Fact

This Little Piggy

This Little Piggy Went to the Market. (shake one arm)
This Little Piggy Stayed Home. (shake the other arm)
This little Piggy had roast beef. (shake one leg)
And this little piggy had none. (shake the other leg)
And this little Piggy ran wee, wee, wee, (tickle belly)
All the way home.

Fact:This helps babies start to develop body awareness.

Itsy-Bitsy Spider

The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the water spout.
(baby on tummy, walk/tickle up baby’s back)

Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
(slide fingers down baby’s back from head to toes)

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
(rub baby’s back)

And the itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.
(baby on tummy, walk/tickle fingers up baby’s back)

Ten Tiny Tickles by Karen Katz

This is essentially my closing of storytime. I read the story and the parents/guardians give their babies the designated number of kisses.

Playtime

Observations

I really enjoyed this session. It was fun to notice when the babies liked a certain rhyme, and the parents are always wonderful in giving feedback. When I told a mom that we were doing the Itsy-Bitsy Spider again, she squealed with excitement. I got to witness firsthand how much her baby loves this tickle rhyme.
