Home Props:

Animals – Squirrel, bird, dog, duck and bee – not essential

 

Flowers real or toy that we will fly the babies around the room to see.  So if you have a scattering of different bright coloured objects around the room that’s ideal.

 

Dress Up – if you have any yellow or yellow and black clothes for babies please dress them in those clothes so they can be bees.  Even wrapping a yellow cloth around them would be great.  They will love it.

 

Bee – if you don’t have a bee toy just print the attached bee image

 

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. 

 

Picture of the sun or a sun toy or picture book with smiley sun.  I’ve attached a sun image if you prefer to print one.

 

Large Plastic Bowls for Drums

 

Bell Instrument – if you don’t have a bell toy just use a maraca or shaker

 

Bubbles

 

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.
