When you have a kid, especially a baby, sometimes you just want a new game or song to play with them, so I decided, I’m going to start Games with your kids. Each (hopefully) Wednesday I will post a new game to play with your little ones. If I get a lot of interest for it, I will start a weekly linky.
This week, I decided to pick one of my favorite songs to sing with my kids. Maggie and I have been doing this since she was just a few months old, and we sang it with Charlie the other day and got lots of smiles from him. Warning: Your baby should have decent head control, otherwise, be sure to hold your hands behind baby’s head.
Hold your baby facing you and sway back and forth while singing:
Tick Tock, Tick tock, I’m a little cuckoo clock
Tick tock, tick tock, now I’m striking one o’clock
Coo coo! (Gently raise baby into the air and back down one time)
Tick tock tick tock, I’m a little cuckoo clock
Tick tock, tick tock, now I’m striking two o’clock
Coo coo! Coo coo! (repeat actions 2 times)
Tick tock, tick tock, I’m a little cuckoo clock
Tick tock, tick tock, now I’m striking three o’clock
Coo coo! Coo coo! Coo coo! (repeat actions 3 times)
I hope your kids enjoy singing this as much as we do!
Feel free to comment with a favorite song or game you play with your little ones. And let me know if you would be interested in a linky each week to share songs and games with others!
