baby & me: sealed with a kiss

Mystery Box: Inside our mystery box, we found a little monkey and a BIG MONKEY! 




Puppet Song: The Itsy Bitsy Monkey

The itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the coconut tree
Down came a coconut and hit him on the knee
OUCH!
Out came Mama Monkey to kiss away the pain.
OOOO-mah! (kiss sound)
And the itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the tree again!

if you don't have monkey puppets, try to substitute another animal, like hedgehogs!!

The itsy bitsy hedgehog went up the big old tree
Down came an acorn and hit him on the knee
OUCH!
Out came Mama Hedgehog to kiss away the pain.
OOOO-mah! (kiss sound)

And the itsy bitsy hedgehog went up the tree again!

Flannel Story: Five Little Kisses to Give Away

I found this idea here at Sunflower Storytime

I have some kisses that I want to give away. 
Who should I kiss this wonderful day? 

Idea #1 Use this Lakeshore Learning Peekaboo Board to reveal family members to kiss.




I'll kiss Mommy! 
Let’s blow ___ a kiss! Ooom-ma!


I have more kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this wonderful day? 
I'll kiss Daddy!


I have more kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this wonderful Day?
I'll kiss my brother!


I have more kisses that I want to give away.

I'll kiss my sister!

I have two more kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this wonderful Day? 
I'll kiss my pets!

I have one kiss that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this wonderful day? 
I'll kiss the baby!


OR Idea #2 Kiss the Animals from my Brown Bear, Brown Bear felt set.

I put 4 felt animals face down on my flannel board.




I have 5 kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this wonderful day? 




I'll kiss Doggie! What does a dog say?
Let’s blow him a kiss in 3,2,1…ooo-mah!

We blew kisses to purple cat, green frog and yellow duck. 





Then...

I have one kiss that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this wonderful day? 
I'll blow you all a kiss, ready?

I would have loved to use my peekaboo board today but worry about the unconventional families and non-white families being unrepresented. So I opted for the animal version. It was super fun!

We had a slightly smaller group today with about 17 babies. It really was a beautiful day out and a fun program too.
