Maisie bombaisie ~ name game, tongue twister
Here's an affectionate way to play with babies' names. Fun to use in a group setting, when introducing everyone round the ring, or on your own with your own child. It's a playground game from Fife taught to us by Eilidh Graham. You can make it work for any name once you get the hang of it, and it's got a good knee-bouncing rhythm to it – start slowly and speed up.
