January Babytime Rhymes

In Babytime we focus a lot on rhymes; they are so simple, yet teach kids the sounds within a word, cause & effect,  science concepts (Itsy Bitsy Spider=learning about evaporation?!), and more! Every month we repeat the same rhymes, so babies, as well as grownups, become familiar with them. If there is ever a rhyme/book  you would like to see in Babytime just let me know!

Up, down, Turn Around

Up, down

Turn around

Touch the sky

And touch the ground

Wiggle your fingers

Wiggle your toes

Wiggle your shoulders

Say, “Hello!”

Mix & Stir

Mix & stir & pat in the pan (stir & pat tummy)

I’m going to make a gingerbread man

With a nose so neat (touch nose)

And a smile so sweet (touch mouth)

And gingerbread shoes on his gingerbread feet!

Macaroni

I have a little pony (bounce)

His name is Macaroni (bounce)

He trots & trots & then he stops (bounce-stop)

My funny little pony

Maaaaacaroni (bounce & jiggle on “ro”)

This Little Piggy

This little piggy went to market.

This little piggy stayed home.

This little piggy had roast beef

And this little piggy had none.

And this little piggy went wee,wee,wee

All the way home.

10 Little Bubbles

One little, two little, three little bubbles

Four little, five little, six little bubbles

Seven little, eight little, nine little bubbles

Ten little bubbles go POP, POP, POP

Let’s Go Riding in the elevator

Let’s go riding in an elevator!

Let’s go riding in an elevator!

First floor,

Second floor,

Third floor

Fourth floor,

Doooowwwwnnn!

Driving in my car

I’m driving in my car

I’m driving in my car

Beep-beep-toot-toot

I’m driving in my car

Other Verses:

I’m driving really fast…

I’m driving really slow…

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

Humpty dumpty fell in a puddle

Humpty Dumpty needs a big cuddle!

Fishes (create your own sea by using a blanket, stuffed animals/paper fish)

Fishes in the water, fishes in the sea

All jump up with a 1, 2, 3!

Motorboat

Motorboat, motorboat go so slow,

Motorboat, motorboat go so fast,

Motorboat, motorboat step on the gas.

Up, down, Turn Around

Up, down

Turn around

Touch the sky

And touch the ground

Jiggle your tummy

Blink your eyes

Blow a kiss and say goodbye!
