Rhymes

Itsy-Bitsy Spider

The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the water spout.
(baby on tummy, walk/tickle up baby’s back)

Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
(slide fingers down baby’s back from head to toes)

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
(rub baby’s back)

And the itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.
(baby on tummy, walk/tickle fingers up baby’s back)

Once there was a Dinosaur

Once there was a dinosaur
All he did was roar and roar.
He roared HIGH. (lift baby up high)
He roared LOW. (drop baby low)
He roared FAST. (bounce baby fast)
And he roared SLOW. (bounce baby slow)
Once there was a dinosaur
All he did was roar and roar. (roar gently at baby)

Dinosaur, Dinosaur 

Dinosaur, Dinosaur,
Where can you be?
Hiding behind me (hands behind back)
Where you cannot see!
Now you see one (bring one hand out)
It’s been waiting for you.
Here comes another, (bring out other hand)
And now you see two!

Here we go down, down, down. (bring baby back to lap)
Here we go up, up, up, (lift baby up)
Here we go down, down, down. (bring baby back to lap)

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

We wave goodbye like this.
We wave goodbye like this.
We clap our hands for all our friends.
We wave goodbye like this.

Playtime

Observations

This was a fun storytime especially when I pulled out the puppets. I handed out each parent/guardian a puppet for the “Dinosaur, Dinosaur” rhyme. My older babies were fascinated by the puppets hiding. One little girl even crawled around her mom to get to the puppet. I think I’m going to start incorporating puppets more into my baby storytimes!
