Daffy-down-dilly ~ springtime baby rocking rhyme or toddler knee ride
Here's a spring-time rocking game to play at nappy changing, or anytime that baby is lying on a play mat or blanket and having a kick about. Rock baby from side to side as you say the rhyme – hold hands to rock, or if too little, take the sides of the changing mat or a little blanket and roll baby from side to side in it:
Has newly come to town,
With her frilly yellow pettycoat,
And bright green gown.
Dale Gale rocked up
And nearly knocked her down
Just said, don't be silly!
