The children in the Butterflies room were involved in a toy baby bathing experience today. They were encouraged to go and collect containers from around the room to use to bath the babies.
They then took it in turns of adding water, and using face washers to wash the babies.
The children were really gentle when they were bathing the babies and they were swapping bath tubs with one another.
Children’s voices from the experience:
Aarna: My baby is so clean now.
Quinn: The water is just right for the baby.
Matthew: This is so funny.
Saavi: I can add soap now too.
Phoebe: This is like my bath at home.
