Water Fun with Little Ones!

Beat the heat! Summer is a great time to get babies and toddlers into the water. Water play encourages the development of eye/hand coordination through pouring, squeezing, stirring, and squirting. Water helps release their emotions by pounding, splashing, swishing, stamping and kicking feet.

Here are some watery nursery rhymes to share with your child.

It’s Raining Baby in Pool

It’s raining, it’s pouring,
The old man is snoring,
He went to bed and he bumped his head
And he couldn’t get up in the morning.

The Itsy Bitsy Spide baby-playing-water r
The itsy bitsy spider
Went up the water spout.
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain,
And the itsy bitsy spider
Went up the spout again.

Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Rub a Dub Dub
Rub a dub dub, three men in a tub,
And who do you think they were?
The butcher, the baker,
the candlestick maker,
They all went out to sea.

Doctor Foster
Doctor Foster went to Glo’ster
In a shower of rain.
He stepped in a puddle,
Right up to his middle,
And never went there again.
