Toddler Time today was a fun book book Suzanne Bloom called Fox Forgets.
To make our craft, we printed off this sheet from the internet that was in another language but we decided we could figure it out. 🙂
Our toddler times start out with some coloring pages and then all the kids and parents come sit on the open carpet spot to sing some songs. Head and shoulders, knees and toes is a favorite right now (how fast can we go?) and we learned a new song about baby ducks from Victoria. But the favorite song of the day was Jingle Bells.
After singing, the kids settle in to hear Miss Alicia read them a story. Today was Fox Forgets by Suzanne Bloom.
After reading the story, the toddlers and moms/grandmas head over to the table to make a craft.
We keep all the small parts of the crafts in envelopes. It makes passing out the cut out parts of the craft so much easier!
When the kids are done with craft making, we have snack! Because after all the coloring, singing, reading, and crafting, kids are starving!
We try to get pictures with finished crafts. Sometimes those photos turn out, sometimes they don’t. And sometimes we get so busy that we don’t catch everyone!
When snack seems to be wrapping up, we pull out the toys. The train track is always a huge hit! While the kids play, the parents or care givers chat and look for books to check out.
We start Toddler Time at 10:30 am on Tuesdays. When we say we start at 10:30, we mean the coloring pages will be out at 10:30. Getting toddlers and babies to Toddler Time is HARD WORK and we totally understand because we are moms and we remember well those days. We usually gather on the carpet at 10:45. Tuesdays are Miss Alicia’s favorite day, she loves to have all the toddlers come in and sing and sit with her while she reads a story! Miss Denise, who is completely uncrafty, sets out the crafts and runs the front desk during our toddler times.
Toddler time seems to wrap up around noon when it’s time for lunch and naps.
Come out and see us on Tuesdays!
