Slowly, Slowly

This is a great tickle which teaches the concepts of slow and fast. Draw a “circle” on your child’s palm, the bottom of their foot, their back, or tummy. During the “up the garden trail”, slowly move your fingers in  walking motion, up their body. During the “into his wee house” part, tickle your child under their armpits. I used this song with my son when I needed him to go slowly or quickly. For example, going up or down stairs, we would sing the “slowly” part. When we needed to cross the street more quickly, we would sing the “quickly” part.


SLOWLY, SLOWLY
Slowly, slowly, very slowly
Goes the garden snail.
Slowly, slowly, very slowly
Up the garden trail.
 
Quickly, quickly, very quickly
Goes the wee mouse.
Quickly, quickly, very quickly
Into his wee house!
