My girls favorite activity from the youngest age is to dance upon their Mummy's hip. What tops this fun off not music from the iPod (which still never goes astray) but my voice in all it's terrible glory :-)
Loose your inhibitions forget what you sound or look like and have fun with it - indeed a wonderful time is to be had by both mother and child!
How does dancing help?
- It builds your bond
- A fun way to pass time & helps to have fun during those witching hours
- Understand and develop movement as your child ages
In fact research has been done that shows infants between 5 months to 2 years are pre-disposed to move rhythmically especially to music so nurture and encourage this with the bonus of bringing joy to your home!
Happy Play Times :-)
