Home Props:

Wooden Spoons and / or Shakers (for the older babies make sure you have enough for you too – if you don’t have any maracas a small plastic container with rice or lentils with a tight lid would work. 

 

Large Plastic Bowls for Drums


Ducks – if you have some small blue fabric you could make a little lake for them to swim in – visual storytelling.

 

Picture of a Horse or a cuddly toy

 

Birds  - if you have one – not essential

Bubbles – we will use most weeks, if you don’t have any you can make your own there are lots of different recipes online.  This one is particularly easy. https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/how-make-bubble-mixture

 

Peekaboo Scarves – anything you can do good peekaboo with OR swishing side to side so we can explore speeds and eye tracking.  Muslin cloth or tea towel is fine too.

Ribbons on a Ring – not essential but nice to have.  They are easily made but if you’d like to buy one from me I have some at €4 each +€2 for postage. 

Some Class Guidelines

  1. Try to use the biggest screen you have

  2. Very importantly, the more you join in the more Baby gets out of it.  The Baby Class is really all about you doing the class and watching the screen and the babies following you not me.  Having said that some of the older babies will follow the screen but that’s not common.   It’s much more so in the toddler classes

Lastly, if you have any feedback during the term please share with me.  Doing the class at home is quite different than in person so letting me know what works and doesn’t work for you means I can give you a better class.
