R was 17 months old at the time of this activity
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – We’ve practiced this song many times in the past, so R is familiar with this one! She’s now learning to sing some of the words to twinkle twinkle little star. She sings the, “up above the” part and sings it “uppa bubba” :). I love how she knows to change words into “songs” by extending them as she sings.
1. Under the Stars
I have no idea why, but R absolutely loves cardboard boxes. She can spend forever in a box laughing, playing and exploring. For recreating the experience of camping under the stars, I poked some holes in a cardboard box and we looked at the how the light was shining through the holes. As R poked at the holes in the cardboard box, we sang twinkle twinkle little star together.
