I want someone to buy me a pony (Song)
When you plan a moment to devote your uninterruped time to your babies and children, this is a really fun song to choose, and a firm favourite with my 5mth, 2yr old and 4yr old.
This works well with children of all ages, and helps them to explore their listening, pitch, musical phrasing, pulse and their tempo.
Babies tend to really enjoy being moved/rocked/bounced to the pulse of the music. As your child becomes more familiar with this song, you may start to notice that they start to anticipate the changes in tempo. Maybe you could surprise them and instead of going faster try going slower (if your legs can cope!)
Older children may also explore this song with their own soft toys on their knees.
