Other
During Baby time we pass out shakers and do some shaker songs. If we are doing an animal theme we use "Old McDonald Had A Farm" during our shaker songs.
Notes
Baby time is started with a "Hello" song and includes bubbles at the end of our program followed by a "Goodbye" song. Then the participants are given a short period of playtime.
