After my short break, my videos are now resuming but in a slightly different format. I plan on releasing a new weekly blog on Monday mornings. The intention is to include a variety of songs and rhymes each week, covering different areas including fingerplay, movement, dancing, peekaboo and lullaby. Although the majority of today’s songs are done standing up, most can easily be adapted for tiny babes in arms if it is easier to sit down and give you arms a rest.
Today’s video includes one peekaboo song, so a scarf will be useful and as there is a lullaby, older children may want to rock their favourite cuddly toy.
After my final Lockdown video I received a few lovely messages including this one: “Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the lockdown videos you have provided over the last few months. My son Dylan (3) and my daughter Ayla (now almost 5 months) have really enjoyed them. Ayla now recognises the welcome song and the goodbye song and her face lights up when she hears them! Dylan looks forward to doing them and always asks for more! I am only sorry that we live in Somerset so won’t be able to join in with live classes when they begin again.”
I hope you enjoy today’s video. I’d love to hear how your little ones enjoy this new format. Any recent photos would also be wonderful as they brighten up my days. The next video will be posted next Monday and I’ll also post on Instagram (maxwellminimusic) and Twitter (@maxwell_mini) once the new video is on the website.
Have a good week, take care and keep singing.
