A Sing & Rhyme Activity for Babies

Baby Babbles

Sing & Rhyme Play with sounds, songs and rhymes.

PLAY

Baby Babbles

Making sounds is so much fun! As soon as baby can figure out how to make a sound, he starts making it all the time. Encourage this sound play by babbling with him. Repeat the sounds he makes and add a few new ones from time to time. Before you know it, your house will be full of baby babbles!


SING

'Round and 'Round the Garden Tickle Rhyme

'Round and 'round the garden, [Gently circle your child's belly, back or hand.]

Goes the teddy bear.

One step, two step, [Walk fingers up child's arm.]

Tickle under there! [Tickle under baby's chin.]

Repeat as long as baby enjoys tickle time!
