Songs for babies and toddlers

Songs for toddlers
As requested, here are some song and rhyme ideas to do with young children.

I always find that children love to hear others singing, rather than listening to a CD. So try and remember some rhymes from when you were growing up or learn a few new ones.

Singing songs with your child has many benefits but the main ones are connection and fun.

This little froggy  - a toe tickling rhyme like three little pigs.

Little Arabella Miller found a fuzzy caterpillar - creep fingers on childs arm or leg

One potato, two potato, - hold their hands like fists and help them do actions 

I'm a little teapotsway child from side to side and tip to side         

There were four fat sausages sizzling in a pan ... - on sizzle give them a little shake, on 'Pop' and 'bang' lift them up and down

Humpty Dumpty - sit them high on your knees facing you, then knees fall down then jig up and down for "horses"

Jack, be nimble, Jack, be quick - adult sits with legs out straight, child on floor to side and lift them over your legs from side to side

See-saw, Margery Daw - Do the same as Row, row, row your boat

Like a leaf or a feather, in the windy, windy, weather - stand, holding child and gently twirl around and bend down to ground.

Have fun. More songs soon or go to Kidsongs.
