Lie on the bed or floor with your baby. Show your baby a stuffed toy and introduce the toy by saying its name. “Oh, here is Mr. Lion.” Hold Mr. Lion in your hand and have him talk with your baby. Then hide the toy and to the tune of, Where is Thumbkin, sing, Where is Mr. Lion, where is Mr. Lion? Make animal reappear and sing, “Here I am, here I am” Sing, “How are you today sir? Very well I thank you, Now run away, run away.” (Repeat a few times)
This is wonderful activity to incorporate into part of a routine.
