Dance Time



Dancing with a toddler in your arms is an excellent way to get some exercise, build a stronger bond between the two of you, and teach your child about rhythm and music, as you dip and sway together. So get swinging to that beat!

How To

What You’ll Need:

  • Upbeat music - nursery rhymes, toddler songs, instrumental


Hold your child securely in your arms and start singing or playing the music. Exaggerate your dance moves with side-to-side sways and some surprising dips and turns. When the song or music ends, freeze in your position. Start dancing when the music starts again.

  • Balance
