Bedtime @ the Museum – July

For this month’s Bedtime @ the Museum we read the Pout-Pout Fish and made a fun set of pouty and kissy lips.  The book was all about a sad fish that wouldn’t cheer up until he got a lovely kiss from another fish in the sea!

First, before we begin the story, it’s very important to get all our wiggles out!

Wiggle-wiggle!

I'm a sad fish... blub, blub, blub

Our audience had some very good listeners

A kiss from a fish was all it took to cheer him up!

Mmm... beditme snacks are the best

This bedtime was full of fishy fun! Join us next month for some more story time fun!
