Games and Poems to Share:

Diddle Diddle Dumpling (Bounce Baby on your knees, holding up one foot then the other as you mention shoes)

Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John
Went to bed with his stockings on;
One shoe off, the other shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John.

Acka Backa
Acka backa soda cracker,
Acka backa boo.
Acka backa soda cracker,
Up goes you! (jump up)

Acka backa soda cracker,
Acka backa boo.
Acka backa soda cracker,
I love you! (hug child)

Handy Spandy
Handy spandy, sugar and candy
We all jump in!
Handy spandy, sugar and candy
We all jump out!
Handy spandy, sugar and candy
We all jump up!
Handy spandy, sugar and candy
We all jump down! (sit down)

Pease Porridge
(Bounce baby to the rhythm of the poem)
Pease porridge hot,
Pease porridge cold,
Pease porridge in the pot,
Nine days old.

Some like it hot,
Some like it cold,
Some like it in the pot,
Nine days old.

Mama Likes it hot,
Daddy Likes it cold,
Baby likes it in the pot,
Nine days old!

Milkshake, Milkshake
(shake baby’s hands, use egg shakers, or gently shake baby)
You take a little milk, pour some milk
And you take a little cream, pour some cream
You stir it all up
You shake it and you’ll sing…a 1,2,3,4
Chorus:
Milkshake, milkshake shake it up, shake it up
Milkshake, milkshake shake it all up!
Milkshake, milkshake shake it up, shake it up
Milkshake, milkshake shake it all up!
