I have been doing “dates” with each of my boys lately. It’s been great to do somethinge age-appropriate with them and to just have 1 (that feels like a break now). The Bug usually gets dragged around to various C related activities so I was excited to try out the Kidzu Busy Baby Bees just for him. We’ve already talked about Kidzu (in its new location) as well as the morning toddler art class they offer.
This class is offered before the museum opens on one Wednesday a month. The class is limited to 8 children and pre-registration is required yet you only sign up 1 class at a time – no session requirement. There is a $4 fee for this. Each month there is a different theme to the activities.
The class is advertised for ages 4 months – 24 months but, really, the older kids are going to get the most out of this. In fact, walkers seemed to be the best target age, in my opinion. There were obstacle courses, music, stories, and more within the 45 minute period.
What I really appreciated about the class was that, unlike a lot of these other tot and infant classes that have music and movement like Kindermusik, Music Together, and Music with Mar, the leader of this session provided a lot of information to parents about developmental milestones and how we could integrate activities at home to encourage our children’s movement. I appreciate how hard it must be to modify a class for such a wide age range! The leader did well!
Alas, my terrible summer cold of 2012 prevented me from getting this out before August’s class (best intentions….) as it was last night but do tag this and put it on your calendar for September!
