Games We Play

Violet loves it when we sing "Itsy-Bitsy Spider" because she knows there is going to be a massive amount of tickling that follows the song. I'm not sure how I came up with this little game but it has been a fabulous hit in our family.

Here's how it goes...
as you sing, "Itsy-bitsy spider went up the water spout", we use our fingers to crawl up Violet's leg and torso.

Then, "Down came the rain", we tap Violet's head gently (as if it's rain falling on her head)

"And washed the spider out!", our hand rushes down the front of Violet's torso.

"Up comes the sun", we move our hand as if it's the sun coming up, making sure that it stops at her face.

"And dried up all the rain", we rub our hand on Violet's face, as if we're drying it off.

"And the itsy-bitsy spider went up the spout again!", we use our fingers to crawl up Violet's body again and stop in the crook of her chin where giggles spring forth!
