Ribbons – on a ring or pom poms. This are for babies to track and follow with their eyes and tickles. (I have these ribbons for sale in case anyone would like one for next week €6 including p&p)
Animals – cow, horse, pig and sheep
Wooden Instrument – for tapping on, to create horse trotting sound. Wooden spoons if you haven’t anything else. Or 2 wooden objects that make a nice wooden sound when tapping together. Exploring the house together to find such objects is a fun sensory sound opportunity for baby.
Parachute / Large very light weight fabric – roughly 5 feet square-ish. This is for lifting up in the air. If you feel adventurous try sewing some fun dangly ribbon on for baby to watch as you lift up and down
Peekaboo Scarves – anything you can do good peekaboo with OR swishing side to side, up and down so we can explore speeds and eye tracking. Muslin cloth or tea towel is fine too.
Maracas or shakers
Animals – Cow, Pig, sheep, Cat, Dog, Horse, Rabbit, Frog, Duck – Obviously just the ones you have. This is the order they will be used.
Some Class Guidelines
Try to use the biggest screen you have
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.
