Singing mamas choir
Rachel - Holistic Harmonies
Singing Mamas Choir, run by the wonderful Rachel is currently running a blended programme of online and in person sessions.
Are you looking for a way to look after your health and wellbeing while still looking after your children?
Are you wondering how you can have some 'me' time without having to find childcare?
Singing can boost our endorphins and our oxytocin and fill us with love and joy. It can bring us back into the present moment and also provide us with a pocket full of songs to help us through our day...
Women of all ages are welcome, with or without children.
With this in mind Holistic Harmonies has decided to keep some singing sessions online and offer an option of 2 outdoor sessions in Liverpool. This way we can cater for those who are still shielding or finding it tricky to get out, and those who just need to hear each others' voices now.
We are offering a 6 week class pass which will entitle you to join ANY of the sessions available. So you could potentially join 5 sessions a week if that takes your fancy... you can also chop and change depending on your schedule and the weather!
3 Toy Colour play ideas
Download one of my play ideas to try at home with baby.
Super easy with toys you will have at home!
It is really important that our little one's learn how to manipulate lots of different objects, it helps their fine finger control and their ability to develop different grips like palmer grasp (where they use their whole hand) and pincer grip (where they hold smaller items between a finger and their thumb).
I'd love you to choose 3 toys that are different textures and that your little one would hold differently and arrange an exploratory play session to help their fine finger control. You might choose a plush toy, a link, starlink, a music toy, a book, a block or a ball.
Let me know if you try
