All aboard! Choo-choo,  we love trains. How about you?

Those of you who have been to our fantastic kids’ programs like Move With Music may recognize the “Train Song.”  We love to sing the train song when we are in circle time. The best part is that it’s easy to do!

First, rub your hands together to mimic the choo, choo, choo, choo rhythm of the train. Then sing:

“Choo-choo, choo-choo, choo-choo, choo, Up the Railroad tracks! Choo-Choo, Choo-choo, choo-choo, choo-choo, then we come right back!

First we go to (child’s name)’s house and then we go to (another child’s name)’s house and then we go to (another’s house)’s and then we come right back!

Try working in fun “destinations” for your child. You can “stop the train” at friend’s houses or grandparents’ houses or at the grocery store or post office! You can speed up your train or slow it down by speeding up or slowing down the swoosh movement of your hands.

Can’t get enough of trains? Check out these picture books!

And if you haven’t been to Move With Music or any of our kids’ programs, you should give it a try! Spring II Registration starts today!

victor-vito

Recite the Baby Octopus rhyme.

Eight long legs and two big eyes
Salty tears when he cries
Digs his home at the bottom of the sea
Can you guess what he can be?
Try to catch him watch him hide
Watch him wiggle watch him slide
Feed him a fish so he won’t fuss
He’s a baby OC-TO-PUS!

Read Swimmy by Leo Lionni
