Just when you think it's safe to read The Ugly Duckling, here comes a pesky crocodile to ruin the story. What's a duckling to do? Thumbs up for this interactive book.
We folded, cut, and decorated our own paper alligators. Cutting is a big challenge for most 4-6-year-olds, so it's helpful to give them lots of practice. Even after all of this we still had some extra time, so we also played a game of Hot Potato with our stuffed alligator puppet and some silly tunes from our Caspar Babypants CDs.
If you have children between the ages of 4 and 6, please join us next Tuesday. There is no charge, and registration is not required, but tickets will be given out starting at 1:30. The program is limited to 18 children, ages 4-6.
