September’s theme is “shapes.” We will be introducing shapes (circles, squares & triangles) to our little ones as we work on getting our bodies back in shape. Each week we’ll focus on a different shape — incorporating the shapes into our workout and pointing out the shapes around us. Bring toys with different shapes for your child to play with in their stroller to help reinforce the concepts! During our Friday Plum Mom’s Play Group the kids will have a hands-on lesson inspired by the shape of the week.
