Pull off those socks and get ready to play! You can play language games while your child is sitting in the car seat, on your lap, or waiting in line at the grocery store. Explore with rhymes from traditional “This Little Piggie” to adaptations like “This Little Froggie:”

Wiggle each toe of the child while saying each of the following lines:

This little froggie broke his toe.
This little froggie cried, “Oh, oh, oh.”
This little froggie laughed and was glad.
This little froggie cried and was sad.
But this little froggie did just as he should;

Tap a rhythm to the bottom of baby’s foot as you say this line:
He hopped to the doctor as fast as he could.
