We sure did have a lot of babies in our tub! The children gathered in the
Walnut room to help clean the baby dolls. As the babies soaked in the suds,
the children scrubbed! The children cleaned bellies, toes, and heads,
but were sure to avoid their eyes. While some children poured the water, others
covered the babies eyes. The babies not only received a bath, but also love and
care from the children. As children participated in the bath, they acted out
real life situations. Many children made connections from their home lives
and recalled their own bath time experiences. All throughout the day, children
took on the role of caregivers as they gave their babies bathes.
