It’s getting cold out there! The chilly mornings make it hard to get out the door, so here’s a storytime to try at home. Alternate between a book and rhyme or two and you’re set!
If you would like to add more to the storytime, you can create some streamer pom poms to move and shake during the songs about autumn leaves and blowing wind. Take crepe paper in autumn colors and cut strips into foot-long pieces. Use masking tape to secure the ends together. They are a great visual and make a great rustling sound. Enjoy!
