Games for 6mths - 1yr Galloping Horses
Lie on your bed, on your back with your knees bent and feet on the duvet, then place your baby sitting on your tummy facing you and leaning back on your knees for support.
Hold your babies hands / wrists and forearms – not too tightly but firmly enough so that you don’t let go.
Then bounce your baby gently up and down – you can get a good bounce going on the bed and every so often tip them gently onto the duvet.
If you sing a song as you do this and tip them over at the same point in the song each time they get really excited!
Songs such as London bridge is falling down / just make horse noises “cliperty-clop”
Often just the bouncing will result in lots of giggles!
