Tickle Story Time – Baby

Opening song

Book: We’ve all got Bellybuttons! by David Martin, illustrated by Randy Cecil

We've All Got Bellybuttons

Dance your fingers up
Dance your fingers down
Dance your fingers to the side
Dance’em all around!

Dance’em on your tummy
Dance’em on your head
Dance’em on your shoulders
And dance’em off to bed.

Rhyme: X marks the spot (draw on baby’s back)
Dot, dot, dot,
Up and down, around and around,
Oooooh! (tickle)

Book: Tickle Time! by Sandra Boynton

Tickle Time

Song: “Baby’s Hokey Pokey” – Georgiana Stewart: Baby Face


These are baby’s fingers, (touch child’s fingers)
These are baby’s toes, (touch child’s toes)|
This is baby’s belly button, (touch child’s tummy)
Round and round it goes! (gently tickle child’s tummy)

Song: Did you ever see a baby, a baby, a baby?
Did you ever see a baby go this way and that? (lean side to side)
Go this way and that way and this way and that way (lean front to back, side to side)
Did you ever see a baby go this way and that? (lean front to back)

Ten Little Fingers

Rhyme: Pizza, pickle, pumpernickel
My little baby deserves a tickle! [tickle baby]
One for her nose, and one for her toes
And one for her belly where the hot dog goes!

Rhyme: Icky bicky soda cracker (bounce)
Icky bicky boo
Icky bicky soda cracker
Up goes you! (lift baby)

Song (with shaky eggs): “Little Sack of Sugar” – Elizabeth Mitchell: You Are My Flower
