March Baby/Toddler Book Club: Alphabet

10 Mar

The theme for this month’s Baby/Toddler Book Club was the Alphabet.  Everyone brought their favorite Alphabet/Letters books and we had a terrific selection.  We actually even finished three of them this time and that’s an accomplishment for 10 kids ages 3 and under.  Though I did hide most of the toys this time, which helped secure their attention and made things a little less chaotic.

This month’s selections that were actually read: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, A You’re Adorable, and B is for Bear.

We also had some simple paint crafts set up for the kids to create their own “A is for Apple,” “F is for Fish” and “H is for Hands” sheets.  Those were the letters I had stuff readily available to create, and I thought three was enough for one sitting.  I’m hoping to complete the rest of the alphabet over the next couple weeks on days we’re stuck indoors and then hang it on one of the basement walls.  To make the apple I had an apple sliced in two for them to dip in paint and then stamp the paper.  Once the paint dries, I think we’ll add a little green stem to help make it look more like an apple.  For the fish, we took one of the fish bathtub toys and used it to stamp the paper and for the hands, they simply dipped their hands in paint and stamped the paper.  It was a lot of fun, and while there were no “in-depth” discussions about the books, we didn’t expect anything other than fun!

Til next month, happy reading!
