Wheels on the Bus
Show babies simple hand gestures that will be easy for them. For example, the hand motions in the patty-cake nursery rhyme. For older babies, try the gestures for "The Wheels on the Bus" song. Babies love to join in as they sit close to you in a group. You can sing the song and provide exaggerated, cheerful gestures that go with each stanza.
