Earth Day Nature Exploration with Baby
Today, in honour of Earth Day, we will be exploring nature using some of the materials provided in your April, Infant Activity Kits and also any baby-safe items you may find in your yard, local park, or just have in your home. One of my favourite nature items for baby to explore is fruit! Thick skinned fruit, like oranges, melons, and coconut are ideal for baby to touch, smell, roll, and even mouth quite safely. We can also fill a shallow bin with 1 or 2 cm of water and allow the baby to engage with the water; using the sea sponge, drift wood, and dry herbs provide in the activity kit. If you have some softened shells or rocks that are large enough that they will not be a choking hazard…you can add those as well.
– Register with us by April 7 to receive a kit full of arts and crafts supplies that include the materials needed for this activity. To register for an activity kit, just email Mehmet at [email protected]. Mehmet will arrange a time for you to pick up your activity kit from 180 Shaw St or make other arrangements with you for pick-up from another site.
For children aged newborn to 15 months. Join us for songs, rhymes & activities to do with your baby, listen and interact with guest speakers on parenting and self-care, meet other parents with babies and access resources & referrals.
