Oh say, can you sea!

This week was probably little man’s favorite! It combined his two favorite things, water and baby shark! If you do not know who baby shark is, you will soon find out! I played the baby shark song for little man when he was about two months old, and it was an instant hit!

Mathematic/Cognitive Skills:

Little man absolutely loves the 10 little fishies song on the Super Simple Songs YouTube channel. Super simple’s website has some great resources, including these flashcards that are perfect to use when singing. Baby shark (little man’s favorite song), also has flashcards.

We also have two ocean themed puzzles that little man loves looking at, as well as trying to put the pieces in his mouth! The fishbowl puzzle is so easy for little hands to grab, and the deep sea dive puzzle is foam, which unfortunately seems to be great to chew on, haha!

Motor:

Water play is probably little man’s favorite activity! He loves the water! I found these adorable ocean bath toys, and we play with them every night at bath time! Now that little man can sit up, he loves trying to grab as many of them as he can! He also loves when we squirt water on him!

    1. Awh! My little man is not a huge fan of our little pool either! He will get in, but he definitely prefers a big pool! Oh, and it has to be warm! Haha!
