This was my very first outdoor story time of the season, so I wanted to make it outdoorsy, but I recently did a garden story time so wanted a different outdoor theme. I chose the loose theme of being active/exercising. I think it was a success! I also did this one for a class visit. The first book in particular is a great choice for active class visits.
I started by blowing bubbles while waiting for everyone to come down into the park.
Book 1: Jonathan and his Mommy by Irene Smalls
An oldie but a goodie. I cannot stress enough how much I love this book. Jonathan and his mommy take a walk in the city and turn it into a dancing, jumping, running good time!
Theme Song: Run Baby Run by Caspar Babypants (I play it on Spotify but this is the Youtube link since I know not everyone has Spotify)
Book 2: Run! by Guilherme Karsten
A short, fun book in which animals are playing hide and seek. Easy to make interactive, In regular storytime, I did lots of encouraging my toddlers to hide behind their grown-ups!
