Spooky Baby Steps through Pretend City

October 10, 2021

Sunday, October 10 | 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM 

Join us for this October’s Baby Steps event as we explore some of nature’s creepy crawly critters! Exploring the different types of bugs in your backyard or on your evening walks can teach your little one about nature and help them develop positive attitudes towards themselves, natural life, and the earth! Asking questions such as “I wonder what’s under the rock?”, “What is that bird eating?”, and “Does that flower smell good?” encourages and nurtures early interest in the natural world! 

Come in costume for our baby costume parade. 

Purpose Behind the Play: Literacy and language development, fine motor skills and grasping, imagination and exploring, hand-eye coordination, curiosity demonstration, creativity, and self-confidence 

Specifically, for: Infant (0-18 months), grownups. For the comfort of our infant guests, no older siblings please.  

  • Art Studio Sessions (8:00 AM – 9:30 AM ): Creepy Crawly Bug Prints! > Today in the Art Studio we’re exploring the different prints and outlines of the different types of creepy crawly bugs – pretend bugs, of course! Seeing the different prints that the bugs make can teach your little one about patterns, size variation, and even cause and effectThere will even be a fall-themed sensory bin, perfect for your little one’s exploration!
  • Circle Time (8:45 AM):Join us as we sing songs about pumpkins and feelings! Your baby will enjoy hearing all the festive words and sounds. Plus, exposing your little one to music and new words early on is a great way to encourage literacy and communication. 

Play Partner: Pretend City’s Brain Builders and Pretendgineerand our Good to Go from Head to Toe Team

Grown-up Tip: Taking a walk not only refreshes you, but your little one too! Be sure to ask questions while exploring, even if your baby is unable to verbally respond. Listening to you helps a child learn new words. It also expands their understanding of the world – by talking about the world around you, they now have context! 

Don’t forget to pick up a free Ages & Stages Questionnaire! to ensure your little one is developing on track!  They’re FREEfast and easy
