Rock-a-bye Baby
Traditional

Lyrics:

Rock-a-bye baby
On the treetop
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock
When the bough breaks
The cradle will fall
And down will come baby
Cradle and all

Rock-a-bye baby
On the treetop
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock
When the bough breaks
The cradle will fall
And down will come baby
Cradle and all

Activities:


Sing the Lullaby at Bedtime: Tuck your little one in before bedtime or naptime and sing this beautiful lullaby.

Sing to a Doll: You and your child can sing the song to a doll, pretending the doll is your child’s baby. Rock the doll back and forth in yours or your child’s arms.


Scarf Play: Find some colorful scarves and pretend they are a pillow or blanket and cover up your child while lying on the floor or in his/her crib/bed.  This is a good activity to try before naptime to get in a sleepy mood!

Call & Response: Sing this well-known lullaby together with your child and then sing every other line and have them respond by singing the lines that follow. For example, you sing, “Rock-a-bye baby” then your child sings, “On the treetop,” and so forth throughout the song. This will help strengthen their memory and recall skills.
