Dry Dance

Baby Bathtime

As you dry your child, rub their fingers and toes one at a time. Name each one as you dry them and do a little dance! When you dry a pinky, shake your hand. When you dry their toe, stamp your foot. Make up a new move for each little finger and toe!

See what your child is learning

Being a part of the “Dry Dance” with you helps your child become more aware of their body, not to mention your playfulness and love. A loving, caring relationship with you supports their developing brain and thinking.
