Babytime Take Two

I learned from my last babytime that:

  1. It’s better to do more songs before the shaker/scarf songs, while the babies/toddlers’ attention spans are still intact, and leave the attention getting songs toward the end.
  2. It’s better to do more “easy” songs that parents are familiar with, as opposed to trying to be too creative and add too many new songs each week. Parents are usually busy trying to wrangle their babies; I don’t think they don’t want to have to focus too hard on learning new songs.
  3. My song board was plain boring. I added fish flannels and an octopus puppet to liven it up.

So I changed my plan a bit for tomorrow’s babytime and hopefully it will go swimmingly (pun intended).
