The new season of Bass Babies started March 4th and I was very interested in bringing my #Avadorable to check out the program for 2-4 year olds at the Bass Museum. Their program is well known for inspiring and educating by exploring the connections between their historical collections and contemporary art.
The Bass Museum of Art is located at 2100 Collins Avenue Miami Beach, fl 33139.
This program is for the museum’s youngest visitors and those who care for them. Bass Babies is a weekly class where toddlers and their caretakers work closely to discover creative and fun ways to interact with art through song, gallery activities and art making.
We joined session 3: which was entitled “discovering the senses”, on March 11. This class focused on the sense of “hearing”.
The intimate class held from 10-11:30am was led into singing “Old McDonald Had A Farm” by the teacher who also played the guitar. The children were encouraged to sing along and mimic the animal sounds. Later in class a recording of sounds were played for the children to identify. Puppets were also introduced to the kids and an instrument to listen to. We then created our own instruments and shakers made out of rice or beans from recycled bottles. The kids especially loved decorating them. After a light snack of goldfish crackers and water provided by the museum (as well as sanitary wipes), we headed out to the courtyard for more song and play with our newly made shaker instruments. The museum provided a safe and fun environment for my two year old to learn. We cannot wait to return on Tuesday!
