In the baby room we have been making our own music by using our hands and a baton to hit the empty chocolate tins and tubs from the home corner. (We’re sure the children will try this one at home over Christmas!) We made lots of noise and had lots of fun!
The babies have also been exploring Christmas tree decorations through touch trays. The babies enjoyed feeling the tinsel and baubles, as well as turning the lights off so they could see the fairy lights twinkling!
