Jack and Jill Go Up the Hill

On the heels of The Grand Old Duke, here’s another fun rhyme with movement play for your baby. Oh the giggles this one got, when Jack and Jill reached the top of the hill!

I sat down with Veronika on my lap, my legs straight.

As a refresher, here are the words:

Jack and Jill went up the hill.

To fetch a pail of water.

Jack feel down,

And broke his crown.

And Jill came tumbling after!

On the first line, I brought my knees up, up, up and up. You can just prop up your baby, but Veronika particularly loved being lifted to the top of my knees. What a gummy grin!

On “Jack fell down”, lower your legs quickly (but be sure to support your little one!) Finally, on the last line, give a little tip to one side – whee.

Here’s a quick clip!
