My youngest is in a Kindermusik class. We both love it.
Our unit is called ‘The Rhythm of My Day’ and so it was suggested that each parent put together a little book illustrating the Rhythm of our child’s day. What a great idea! Not only is it a great book for them to read and look at now, it will be a great book to look back on as they grow older, to see how the rhythm of their day has changed.
So over the last week or so, I have been photographing the common place activities in my 18 month old’s day….the nap times, play times, teeth brushing, lunch, dinner etcetera. I have also started to compile them in a scrapbook album I picked up for just a few dollars at Kmart. Even without my planned embellishments (I can’t help myself), it already looks great.
My 4 year old has also been interested in this project too. Really, I shouldn’t be surprised. Before he began Kindergarten, the centre gave him a picture book that outlined the ‘rhythm’ of a Kindergarten day. He loved it and often recites the book as we drive to Kindergarten. When I suggested we make a ‘Rhythm of Oliver’s Day’ scrapbook, including pictures of him doing the activities, he was all for it.
Such a simple, yet fun, activity and keepsake. I promise to share the completed books with you as soon as they are done.
Enjoy your day.
