PLAY

Rhyme a Day

Collect pictures to go with your child's favorite songs and nursery rhymes, like a drawing of a teapot for "I'm a little teapot". Glue or tape these pictures to index cards. Let your child pick a card, and do the rhyme together. You could pick one rhyme for the whole day, or pick as many different cards as your child wants!


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!
