Learn Numbers And Skills With Tappy
With little ones who aren’t so sure about certain parts of the bathing process you can play Tappy Says! Get them to interact with Tappy and follow what Tappy says. “Tappy Says!….touch your nose, Tappy Says!….touch Tappy’s arm, Tappy Says!….wash your belly.” You can also ask them to “Show Tappy how good you can be and how grown up you are….show Tappy how you put the shampoo in your hair and get your hair washed.”
Tappy is also a great educational tool. Use her to help children to learn numbers and colours:
- Can you count all of Tappy’s arms? Which arm is number 3? Can you touch number 7?
- Each arm colour is in the order of the Rainbow Song, let’s sing it – Red & Yellow & Pink & Green….Purple & Orange & Bluueee! Can you show me yellow?
- They can then be combined to practice – Which number is green? What colour is number 5?
- Older children can learn adding numbers such as 2+3, 1+4, and 3+5.
