Brainy Baby Activity #2: This Little Piggy...

Toe Tales

This little piggy went to market… this little piggy went wee, wee, WEE! The classic song for tiny babies isn’t just for fun (even though wiggling those adorable toes is pretty darn fun)—those little piggies are actually helping your baby build brain connections.

Whether you sing it straight or make up your own lyrics, when your baby hears your words and feels your touch, his brain makes a connection between words and actions. And if he goo-goos, ga-gas, and giggles in delight? Goo-goo right back! Responding to what your child does and says helps him develop the foundation for speaking and reading.

Meet the Bezos Family Foundation.

The Bezos Family Foundation believes that all children are born with a deep desire and potential to learn—and that education is the best investment we can make today to ensure a better tomorrow (and at KinderCare, we couldn’t agree more). The Vroom program was created to inspire families to turn everyday moments into opportunities for children to learn and grow. Developed with input from neuroscientists, early childhood experts, and parents, Vroom shares the science of early brain development with families because all parents have the potential to create a bright future for their kids.
