Toddler Time: Winter!

We are halfway through the six week trial period of Toddler Time, and so far it has been a major success.  I’m not too surprise about how large are numbers have gotten for this program; toddlers are deemed old enough for social activities by parents, but they’re still too young for preschool.  Our third Toddler Time was all about Winter…

MOVEMENT ACTIVITY:

POPPING BUBBLES
Since we couldn’t bring falling snow into the storytime room to play with, we popped falling bubbles instead.

HOW IT WENT:

The rhymes worked very well, and the kids loved popping bubbles.  The books were a little less interactive (they weren’t roaring along with dinosaur, or pointing out different parts of the body with tickle monster), but I think the books still worked well for a very relaxed and laid back storytime.
