Wilma Ellersiek created a body of work designed for the young child. Her little hand-gesture plays and movement games include gesture, rhythm, rhyming verse, full body movement and singing in the mood of the ﬁfth. We’ll do a variety of games including loving touch, dancing hands, seasonal plays and delightful movement games. These games demonstrate great wisdom in supporting healthy sensory development.
These little plays may be woven into the fabric of your family life creating a more harmonious and joyful atmosphere throughout the day and night.
Join us for a morning of delightful ﬁnger plays and movement games that will engage your children in the most wonderful ways!
