Sing a Song

Here’s a baby dance rhyme by Mother Goose!

Dance, little Baby, dance up high!
Never mind, Baby, Mother is by.
Crow and caper, caper and crow,
There, little Baby, there you go!
Up to the ceiling, down to the ground,
Backwards and forwards, round and round;
Dance, little Baby and Mother will sing,
With the merry coral, ding, ding, ding!

(try this song with the whole family, changing out Mother for Father, Sister, Grandma, and whoever else is nearby dancing)


Try This

Put on the radio, CD, or just sing and help your child make up his or her own tune. Everyone dance together.

Can everyone make up their own dance routine?
