The Baby Times! 7th Edition: Bath Time Fun!


As I was giving the baby a bath last night, I realized that I didn't know very many bath time songs or rhymes. So I researched different songs and poems and thought I'd share on The Baby Times- just in case other Mommas or Poppas out there needed ideas as well. Have fun Bebopping and singing to baby during your next bath time!

Bebop Bath

It's a scrubble-de-time.
It's a bubble-de-time.
It's a rub-dub-a-dub
Dub-a-dubble-de-time!

You can wash with a swash.
You can swim with a swish.
Be a seal!
Be a whale!
Be a fish if you wish!

You can flip-flop your arms.
You can wig-wag your feet.
You can sail all your boats.
Let a duck join the fleet!

'Cause …

It's a scrubble-de-time.
It's a bubble-de-time.
It's a rub-dub-a-dub
Dub-a-dubble-de-time


Another great idea is to take a little song we are already familiar with and change the words to fit bath time.  For example-

Mulberry Bush
This is the way we wash our hands

Wash our hands, wash our hands.
This is the way we wash our hands,
When were in the bath tub!
 or
Frere Jacque
Splish splash water, splish splash water
On your toes, On your toes
On your fingers, on your fingers
On your nose, on your nose

What a cutie you have there! I have always sung the Mulberry Bush song as you posted it. It's a great way to teach the names of body parts!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog this week. I really appreciate it!
