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

But Daffy-down-dilly

Just said, don't be silly!
