baby & me: playing peekaboo

PEEK A BOO was our Baby & Me theme for today.

Mystery Box: Inside our yellow box, we found a picture of a baby!

Books We Read: 
Peekaboo Baby- Braun
Peekaboo Who- Taback
Peekaboo Blueberry- Saltzberg

Flannel Story: One Little Baby from Mel’s Desk 

One little baby rocking in a tree
Two little babies splashing in the sea
Three little babies crawling on the floor
Four little babies knocking on the door
Five little babies playing hide and seek
Keep your eyes closed…
Till I say “peek!”

Puppet: Monkey in a barrel

Monkey peeked out at the babies today & we sang:
Where is monkey? PEEKABOO!
Where is monkey? PEEKABOO!
Where is monkey? PEEKABOO!
PEEKABOO to monkey!

On this gray day with lots of rain & wind in the forecast for the next few days, we had a much smaller group than usual for Baby & Me with only 8 babies and 8 moms. Honestly, it was a nice change! The room was quiet with a very relaxed vibe and everyone could spread out to play. During playtime, one mom smiled at me and said, “This is nice!” and the other mothers agreed. I heard one comment, “I wish it would rain every Thursday!” For a special treat, the new cupcake shop next door donated a dozen pineapple cupcakes – delicious!
