This Little Piggy

Description:

This age-old rhyme is a wonderful way to connect with your young child. It can be done with fingers or toes, during bath time, nappy-change or relaxing play time.

This Little Piggy

This little piggy went to market (wiggle baby’s big toe)

This little piggy stayed home (wiggle baby’s second toe)

This little piggy had roast beef (wiggle baby’s third toe)

And this little piggy had none (wiggle baby’s fourth toe)

And this little piggy (wiggle baby’s pinky toe)

Cried all the way home! (tickle baby by running your fingers up her leg)

Promote learning by:

Using both baby’s feet for this rhyme. Ask if they want more, then wait for acknowledgement before continuing. At this age, your baby may respond to your question with only a smile or other facial expression, a nod, or an attempt at a word. Listening and responding to rhymes is great for developing early literacy skills.
