Did you miss our Toys storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions for a toy themed storytime of your own. The books with stars before the title were shared this evening. It can be a good opportunity to talk with children about sharing, losing, or forgoing toys they have outgrown as times for new toys approach, like birthdays or the holidays.
We also danced to Toy Boat by Jim Gill from his Irrational Anthem CD and found our missing teddy bear hiding under different colored circles. We used a flannel board, but you could do the same thing with pots, boxes, or pillow cases.
Little Bear, Little Bear
Where is Little Bear?
Could he be hiding under
