10:45 – The Storyteller introduces the theme and we say ‘hello’ in fun and imaginative ways!
10:50 – Our little friends pick props out of the special TBT bag and they share (with your help!) an item with one of our older friends. The prop corresponds to a nursery rhyme and we sing it together.
11:00 – Story time! We all get involved, included and encouraged by the tale of the day.
11:05 – After a little bit of listening, we need a good jiggle so we dance to something vintage and encourage everyone who can move in any way to join in.
11:10 – There’s time for a few more pockets, props and songs.
11:20 – We blow bubbles, play with a parachute and listen to a calming song.
11:25 – Sticker time!
11:30 – The care home provide a light lunch for the children, things like hummus, breadsticks, vegetable sticks, fruit and little sandwiches. And we get to have a cuppa! We can then sip, nibble and chat with each other and the residents.
12:00 – Feel free to leave when it’s right for you and your little one.
