In the infant room, we are doing activities all day long that foster an active learning environment! Kathy and Karla plan developmentally appropriate learning activities designed to help the children develop and grow. Every month, we showcase some of the fun with a bulletin board display in every classroom. Let’s take a closer look at the infant’s February fun!
Infant Room February Fun
For President’s Day, we cut out white stars that are easy to grab and hold for babies. The children used ink pads to make their handprints in red, white and blue. This is always a fun activity. We love oversized ink pads at The Little Lamb because they eliminate a lot of the mess associated with painting, but don’t detract from the fun! Lydia had red ink on the tray and paper. She couldn’t figure out what was making the red prints!
We also made butterflies with the babies’ hand prints. The child stamped their hand print on a piece of construction paper and then we added doilies and “antennae” to make a beautiful love bug! Madelyn loves to paint and wanted to continue to finger-paint. Giselle and Taylor didn’t want to stop either. Lucy and Blair just go with the flow and let us move their hands and smile.
