Slowly, Slowly/Quickly Quickly

Ok this morning's snail reminds me of a rhyme;

Slowly, slowly, very slowly creeps the garden snail,
Slowly, slowly, very slowly up the garden rail.
Quickly, quickly, very quickly like a little mouse,
Quickly, quickly, very quickly all around the house!

Action snail - goes on all fours n crawl very slowly, then crawl upwards to indicate crawling up the garden rail mouse - stand up, hold hands in front of u near the chin then run quickly on the spot, run quickly in a small circle to indicate running all around the house.

Saw this on the web, action for babies
Tickling games that have a change in pace will delight your baby and stimulate the ability to remember.

On this rhyme, move your fingers very slowly to start (the snail) then pause for a moment before tickling your baby quickly (the mouse). Soon your baby will anticipate the faster tickle with a smile or by "freezing". This shows that your baby's memory is growing!
