Dr. Sally Says… Songs play a major role in your baby’s development. Using your baby’s name in a song makes it self-esteem building. This song combines using your baby’s name along with paying attention to what he or she is wearing.
A Color Song!
Age Range: Nine to 12 Months
Area Being Developed: Self-esteem (Belief in Oneself)
Join your baby in front of a mirror. Then before you begin singing, point to and say out loud the colors you see in clothes you are both wearing. When you are ready to sing, choose the color that you see most. Then get ready to point to those colors. When you are finished enjoying this song using one color, choose another color and keep singing. Each stanza is the same except for the color you choose.
Here is the song beginning with one color.
Samantha’s wearing a pink dress, pink dress, pink dress.
Samantha’s wearing a pink dress all day long.
Debbie’s wearing a pink blouse, pink blouse, pink blouse.
Debbie’s wearing a pink blouse all day long.
