Mighty Movers CBR – Active Play #20 The Gingerbread Man

I must admit, I love the quiet time of snuggling up with my child and sharing a book. Although, what I enjoy even more is hearing and observing the stories we share weave their way into his play, singing and story telling. Through Mighty Movers CBR I’ve come to value bringing books to life with movement. Story time doesn’t have to always be quiet time and indoors – it can be active, exuberant, noisy, full of self-expression and take place outdoors – that’s why we’ve created Active Play Idea #20.

Your local Libraries ACT staff will be able to assist you with titles that will get you and your children moving. Or go online and check out their Kids Programs like Giggle & Wiggle.

Move More Sit Less when sharing story time with your child!

Mighty Movers CBR – Active Play #14 Ideas with a Bed Sheet

Sheets – every house has them. But, did you know that the humble bed sheet is one of the most versatile active play items in your home?

We’ve unfolded 4 fun play ideas for you to share with your child in Active Play Idea #14.

Looking for baby play fun? Try making-the-bed peek-a-boo, or creating a long crawling tunnel using chairs, or play ‘now you see them, now you don’t’ with the teddies.

Old sheets can be used as picnic blankets for backyard meal times or laying with your baby under a shady tree and watching the wind move the leaves.
