Children often get upset when they hurt themselves and look to parents or carers to make them feel better. This is a really useful rhyme that you can sing to them whenever a mild injury occurs. Kids love routine, so you will find that your little one soon focuses more on singing along and quickly forgets that they were ever hurt.
|Pat it||(Take child’s sore hand in yours and gently pat it)|
|Kiss it||(Kiss child’s hand)|
|Stroke it||(Stroke child’s hand)|
|Hug it||(Hug your child)|
|Three days sunshine||(Using both hands, make a big circle with your arms to represent the sun)|
|Three days rain||(Starting with hands above your head, twinkle fingers and move hands down to chest height to represent rain)|
|Little hand||(Clap with your child with each word)|
|All well again||(Clap with your child with each word)|
Tip: You can use this rhyme for just about any part of the body that a child may hurt. To do this, simply exchange ‘hand’ for the body part they are concerned about.
