Swaddling contests

I wanted the children to learn some practical baby-related skills during this unit, so we did several activities related to that. I figured it can only make them better babysitters someday (and Abraham is already quite good!). First we learned how to swaddle, and then we had contests for who could do it fastest, tightest, etc. We talked about soothing babies, how to tell what they need, different ways to keep them happy, and what to do when they just won't stop fussing. ("Never shake a baby!") We may have manhandled the "babies" (mostly stuffed animals) a little, but such is life. We had lots of fun. :) Nothing is sweeter than watching my babies take care of their babies!
