FINGERPLAY: Here is a Baby
Here is a baby (index finger)
Ready for a nap
Lay her down in her mother’s lap. (place finger in palm)
Cover her up so she won’t peek; (curl fingers around index finger)
Rock her till she’s fast asleep. (rock)

Use scarves to pretend getting ready for bed! Our next book was about getting ready for bed so this was a perfect activity for the group to do. They loved this and chimed in with what we should wash next!
(rub scrunched scarf on face)
This is the way we wash our face,
When we get ready for bed.
—Wash our toes
—Wash our knees
—Wash our tummy
