After a stressful few days worrying about bush fires in our area, it was time for my smallest child and I to do something fun and positive. So we got out the bee hive and little bee puppets I created for a wonderful ebook called Zero to Two.
And while Noah was playing with the puppets and saying the rhyme over and over again, I put together a quick animation to go with it. When I was done I invited Noah to come and say the rhyme with me so I could record it… I added his cute little squeaky voice to my animation and some gorgeous images from the ebook and played it back to him…
“That’s me! Play it again! Pwwwwease Mummy… play it again!”
And so we have played this little video over and over, and counted bees, and smiled, and laughed, and let the stress melt away as we played.
Play is so important during times of stress, and every single day. And playing with our kids doesn’t have to be difficult! This lovely ebook Zero to Two – a Book of Play is full of fabulous, doable ideas for babies and toddlers (and also bigger kids, because my little one is three and has loved trying out some of these activities!)
I am proud to join a fabulous group of contributors who have shared 25 playful learning ideas as well as links to more than 50 additional activities. Among the ideas are two exclusive printables – a set of pram or stroller activity cards and our printable beehive and bee puppets!
This is an ebook, which means you get instant access and can download the ebook to your computer as soon as you buy it. You can read it on a screen or device, or you can print the whole book on your home printer, or just specific activities as you need them.
