Simple clapping and rhyming games introduce your baby to rhythms and patterns of speech. While they might seem a little silly, research indicates that these types of games can actually contribute to cognitive and motor development. Enjoy the giggles as you play together with your baby.

HERE ARE SOME GREAT SONGS FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY TO SING TOGETHER:

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,

Knees and toes!

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,

Knees and toes!

Eyes and ears and mouth and nose

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,

Knees and toes!

It’s Raining It’s Pouring

It’s raining, it’s pouring.

The old man is snoring.

He went to bed and bumped his head.

And couldn’t get up in the morning.

If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands!

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands!

If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it,

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands!


If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet!

If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet!

If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it,

If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet!


If you’re happy and you know it, shout “Hooray!”

If you’re happy and you know it, shout “Hooray!”

If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it,

If you’re happy and you know it, shout “Hooray!”

I’m a Little Teapot

I’m a little teapot, short and stout

Here is my handle, here is my spout

When I get all steamed up, I may shout:

“Tip me over and pour me out!”

Wheels on the Bus

The wheels on the bus go round and round

Round and round

Round and round

The wheels on the bus go round and round

All ’round the town


The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish

Swish, swish, swish

Swish, swish, swish

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish

All ’round the town


The driver on the bus goes ‘move on back’

Move on back

Move on back

The driver on the bus goes ‘move on back’

All ’round the town


The people on the bus go up and down

Up and down

Up and down

The people on the bus go up and down

All ’round the town


The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep

Beep, beep, beep

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep

All ’round the town


The baby on the bus goes ‘whaa whaa whaa’

Whaa whaa whaa

Whaa whaa whaa

The baby on the bus goes ‘whaa whaa whaa’

All ’round the town


The parents on the bus go ‘shh, shh, shh’

Shh, shh, shh

Shh, shh, shh

The parents on the bus go ‘shh, shh, shh’

All ’round the town

Pat-a-Cake

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man.

Bake me a cake as fast as you can

Pat it, and prick it, and mark it with “B”

And put it in the oven for Baby and me!

This Little Piggy

This little piggy went to market,

This little piggy stayed home,

This little piggy had roast beef,

This little piggy had none,

And this little piggy cried “wee wee wee” all the way home.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the waterspout.

Down came the rain

and washed the spider out.

Out came the sun

and dried up all the rain

and the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.

Open Shut Them

Open shut them, open shut them,

Clap a little clap, clap, clap.

Open shut them, open shut them,

Pat them in your lap, lap, lap.

Creep them, crawl them, creep them, crawl them

Move them to your chin, chin, chin.

Open wide your little mouth,

But do not let them in, in, in.

Trot Trot to Boston

Trot, trot to Boston,

Trot, trot to Lynn,

Watch out baby

You don’t fall in!

This Is the Way the Baby Rides

This is the way the baby rides

Trippety trop, trippety trop,

Trippety trop, trippety trop.

This is the way the baby rides,

Trippety trop, hooray!


This is the way the toddler rides

Gallop-a-trot, gallop-a-trot,

Gallop-a-trot, gallop-a-trot,

This is the way the toddler rides,

Gallop-a-trot, hooray!


This is the way the big kid rides,

Hobledy-hoy, hobledy-hoy,

Hobledy-hoy, hobledy-hoy,

This is the way the big kid rides,

Hobledy-hoy, hobledy-hoy, hooray!
