The Man in the Moon: Traditional Poem
This is a great rhyme to say to your baby before bed at night time. If the moon is out, show your baby as you say this poem.
The Man in the Moon looked out of the moon
Make a family rainstorm
Mommy starts and Daddy follows in a round. (Or use other family members or friends.)
Babies love simple shapes like circles and stars. They never get tired of looking at pictures of moons, suns, and stars. Look for glow-in-the dark crayons. Paint and cut out star and moon shapes to place on the ceiling. (You can also buy glow-in-the dark shapes or stickers.) Put the glowing stars and moons in the baby's room or a playroom. If you are using more than one shape, spread them out. This will make it easier for your baby to understand which is which when you point up at the ceiling.
The Mommy Tree
Pretend you are a tree. Help your baby climb to the top.
Play the same game with the Daddy Tree. Ask Daddy to balance or hold an apple on his head. Help your baby get on top of Daddy's shoulders to grab the apple.
pouring: raining hard
