Sing “If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands” (If you don’t know the tune, make up your own.) At the end of the line, clap your hands and ask your child to clap their hands too. Next, try changing up actions: touch your nose, hop on one foot, or snap your fingers. When they are ready, ask them to pick what actions you do next!
