Baby Time Valentine's! 2-13-13

I figured a lot of babies would be at Valentine's Day parties, but it turns out a lot of them partied it up in Baby Time!  So cute!

34 babies
37 adults

I did a lot of the same activities with the Wiggle Worms (toddlers) yesterday, so here's a quick summary of today:

Rhymes / Finger Plays / Bounces

Humpty Dumpty:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
Humpty Dumpty fell in a puddle
Humpty Dumpty needs a big cuddle

Skidamarink a dinky dink
Skidamarinky doo
I love you
I love you in the morning (arms like a sun over your head)
and in the afternoon (lower arms)
I love you in the evening (lower arms)
and underneath the moon (sleep on hands)
Skidamarink a dinky dink
Skidamarinky doo
I love you!

Two Little Lovebirds

Two little lovebirds sitting on a hill
One named Jack
and one named Jill
Fly away, Jack
Fly away, Jill
Come back, Jack
Come back, Jill

Additional verses...

Snow / Fast / Slow

Cloud / Quiet / Loud

Book: All Kinds of Kisses by Nancy Tafuri.
Bouncing Song:  We danced to "Will You Be My Valentine?" - a song filled with lots of dancing, hugging, spinning, and hand holding.  So sweet to see the littlest babies in their caregivers' laps and the older babies bustin' a move!

Look at these cute twins!  I got to dance with this handsome fella for the song:

Prop Rhyme:  Under the heart there is.... ultimately, a Love Bug!

Music activity:  Instead of shakers, the babies flew plush bug rattles with scarves tied on as I played the song "Love Bug"


  1. Can you please tell me the artists for the songs "Will You Be My Valentine?" and "Love Bug"?
