Baby Ways…
His legs can’t walk, so he must crawl
He drinks from a bottle
(place a baby bottle on the board)
And naps in a crib
(place a crib on the board).
He dribbles his food, so he wears a bib.
(place bib on the board)
When his pants are wet, he starts to cry.
(place a diaper on the board)
His mom will change them, so he’ll be dry.

What’s in the Box Game…
In a feelie box, place items such as a baby brush, a bar of baby soap, a cotton ball, a pacifier, a rubber teether and a rattle, etc. Have the children take turns feeling an item in the box and guessing what it is by its feel.

One saw a ball, and so he crawled away.

Four little babies were playing together one day.
One saw a rattle, and she crawled away.

Three little babies were playing together one day.
One saw a kitty cat, and he crawled away.

Two little babies were playing together one day.
One saw a teddy bear, and she crawled away.

One little baby was playing by himself one day.
He cried and his mommy came and took him away.

Pat a Cake…
Pat a cake; pat a cake (Clap hands to words.)
Baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can
(Clap faster.)
Pat it and roll it (Roll hands around each other.)
And mark it with a “B” (Clap hands to words.)
And put it in the oven for baby and me

Five Little Babies…
Five little babies in the bed
(hold up fingers & remove one each time)
And the little one said, “Roll over, roll over.”
(roll hands)
So they all rolled over & one fell out
There were 4 in the bed
And the little one said, “Roll over, roll over.”
Etc. down to “one in the bed”
And the little one said, “Good Night!”

For Baby…
Little fingers,
Little toes,
Little mouth,
Little nose.
Little ears,
With which to hear,
Little baby,
So precious and dear.

Circle Time Discussion…
Ask open ended questions to children about babies, such as:
* How do babies get around?
* What kinds of foods should babies eat?
* How do babies tell us what they want or need?
* What kinds of toys are good for babies? What kinds are not?
* What do you remember from when you were a baby?
* Any kids with babies in their house can talk about them.

More Circle Time Ideas…
Show the kids different baby items (pacifier, bottle, diaper, formula, newborn clothes, baby wipes, baby food jar etc.). Ask children what the object is and why it is needed.

This Little Piggy…
This little piggy went to the market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef.
This little piggy had none.
This little piggy cried wee, wee, wee, all the way home.

Rock- A- Bye Baby…
Rock- A- Bye baby on the tree top.
When the wind blows the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall.
And down will come baby cradle and all.

Baby Picture Guessing Game…
Have parents bring a photo of their child when he/she was a baby (without child knowing). Mix them all up and see if each child can pick out their own pictures. Have kids discuss what they remember about being babies. Let them crawl around. Perhaps they could even eat a jar of applesauce baby food (with a little cinnamon added, of course!).


Baby In Bed…
On a piece of white paper glue a picture of a baby’s head cut from a magazine. Cut a blanket from a piece of construction paper and decorate any way the child wishes(this becomes the babies blanket) If the children wish they may cut pictures of stuffed animals for the baby to sleep with.

Bottle Painting…
Mix together tempera paint and water and allow the children to squeeze or drip paint to make creative pictures.

Baby Paintings…
Have children paint with Q-tips and pastel tempera on small pieces of paper. Frame their baby paintings on pastel construction paper, very pretty.

Baby Scribble…
Remind the children that when babies color they scribble all over the paper. Do a project like a baby. They will scribble all over a white piece of paper and then paint over with a light wash of black paint. The children are fascinated to see how the paint does not stick to the color but only to the white paper. You do have to remind them, however, to color pretty hard when they are scribbling. But it makes a pretty picture when they are through.

Baby Power Finger Paint…
Finger paint with pastel colored paint. Sprinkle the paint with baby powder to give it a different feel and smell.


Bathing Dolls…
You could move the sensory table into the house corner, have the children bathe dolls in water table with soap and wash cloths. You may add doll clothes, diapers, empty bottles of power, baby toys. Etc.

Clothing Sort…
Provide clothing from adult, babies, and young children. Have the children sort the clothing into two or three different boxes.

Baby Item Sort…
Cut pictures from magazines both of items used when caring for an infant and those you would not use. Have the children sort the items into proper boxes.

Baby Game…
Create 2 laminated grids of baby pictures Set out on a table with a die and two containers of small baby theme counters, usually found in party store. Have the children take turns rolling the die and placing the appropriate number of baby items for the babies on their grid.

Create A Prop Box…
Using a box fill it with some or all of the following items to enhance creative play in the house corner. Bottles, pacifier, baby power bottle, stuffed animals, rattles, diapers, blanket, stroller, crib, rubber pants, diaper bag, baby food jars, baby booties, baby wipes, rubber tip spoon, infant seat, and mobile.
