Last month we had an activity where we talked about Babysitting Basics and then we assembled babysitting kits for the Beehives to take with them as they went out babysitting.
This was our course "textbook" if you will.
Each card has some important information and tips for the girls and it fits inside their kit.
Here is the list of topics that we covered on each card:
BEFORE THEY LEAVE (Info to gather)
COMMON HOUSEHOLD DANGERS
SOOTHING A BABY
IMPORTANT PHONE #'s
RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE PLAYDOUGH
We then gathered a bunch of materials for the girls to put into their own babysitting kit.
The contents are:
coloring sheets and puzzles
Most of these items were things that we already had around the house and donated to the project.
Everything fit into this great bag we found at the $1 Store.
We also covered how to diaper a child and had the girls practice on stuffed animals.
Here's the evidence:
(I got the biggest giggle out of the girl who diapered poor Ratatoille here. You can't even see his arms!)
