Peekaboo, I Love You ! Connecting with babies

Peekaboo scarvesThe game “peekaboo” is the most basic of parent-baby games, yet one of the richest.  In one simple gesture, baby’s beloved adult magically appears in response to baby’s desire – smiling, looking only at baby, telling baby with face and eyes alight, “I am here just for you, whenever you need me; you are adorable, and I love you so much!”  No wonder babies have a seemingly unending appetite for this game!

This game is played in every country and every home that has children.  In our newest semester of Village, specific to babies, we learn to say “I See You” in many languages.  And there are many other such songs and games that have been gathered from homes around the world, and shared in the upcoming summer semester of 

Peek-a-booPeek-A-Boo, I Love You !

This program is specifically designed for families that want to offer their baby (2 – 18 months) and opportunity to freely explore music in a variety of ways, creatively interacting with a parent (or grandparent), and with other babies and their parents.  Ooooh, I just LOVE this baby time !

Peekaboo, I Love You!  Is a semester full of activities that celebrate the games that help develop relationship between a baby and her most important teachers – mom, dad, grandparents, siblings, and close friends.   The included activities are inspired by songs and baby games from many countries around the world and the special love between a parent and child.   These activities become personal rituals which strengthen the family bonds, and make the daily routines more special.  These activities stand up to the test of time because babies learn so much from them.

Includes FIVE  45 min. classes.  Each day focuses on a different theme:

  • I See You !
  • I Will Be Happy
  • Love Somebody
  • Good Old Summertime
  • I Love You !

A  FABULOUS set of home materials makes sure the learning continues ALL summer long:

  • Peekaboo kitQuality CD that includes all the music and rhymes from class, and more
  • a color poster with developmental thoughts and activity ideas
  • a duck puppet/bath mitt
  • a Ducky Gertie Ball (soft and spongy – way fun!)
  • and a variety of handouts full of ideas and resources
