Head Shoulders Baby 1,2,3


This is a good song to use to teach babies and toddlers the names of body parts.
Touch each body part named or perform the action named (clapping, kiss etc).
Use your fingers or the babies fingers to count off the numbers.
The first 2 verses are traditional, rest of the verses are movements I like to use.
Make up more of your own. You can have your baby kick his legs, clap her feet or touch his nose.

As children get older you can add more difficult movements.
Turn around/ Jump up and down...etc.
