Here are the arms on Grandma's chair


The last time we were together, the grandchildren made this little play rhyme with me ~ as the chair.


Sit your toddler on your knee, facing outwards. Hold your arms out to either side of them so they can rest their arms on yours, then they can plant their feet on your knees, wobble around to make themselves comfortable ~ and be bounced ~ until maybe Grandma's chair breaks and they bump onto the floor.


Change the last line to 'rocking' for a calmer finish with a cuddle.


It's happily ambiguous as to whose feet and whose seat the words refer to, so a bigger toddler or little child can do the actions all on their own: holding their arms out, patting their feet, patting their bum, and bouncing off around the room.


Here are the arms on Grandma's chair Here are the feet on Grandma's chair Here is the seat on Grandma's chair And here is the baby bouncing there!


Here are the arms on Grandma's chair Here are the feet on Grandma's chair Here is the seat on Grandma's chair And here is the baby rocking there.


Here are the arms on Grandma's chair Here are the feet on Grandma's chair Here is the seat on Grandma's chair And here is the baby snoring there.
