Veronika is familiar now with some of our favorite fingerplays, like Itsy Bitsy Spider and Wheels on the Bus. Today, it was her turn to get in on the hand motions!
Sit your child in a comfortable position facing you; the Boppy or a similar nursing pillow is a great option for little ones who can’t sit up on their own yet.
I knelt in front of Veronika with a big smile, and held her hands as we went through the rhyme. She seemed so excited that her fingers were making the spider go up, too!
Down came the rain…
…and out came the sun.
Next we tried Wheels on the Bus, which consists of fun movements for your infant to join in on. Her little arms went round and around, up and down, open and shut, you name it.
This game made for an adorable morning of play, and we’ll be sure to try it again soon.
