Sing the song and use your face to make the appropriate animal actions or gestures e.g. gently stroke around your baby’s mouth (‘around the moo’); wrinkle your nose for ‘pig’; your hand to open and shut like a duck’s bill (‘had a duck’).

If you have any animal toys at home, you could use these during the appropriate verse.

Encourage your child to dance whilst singing the chorus. You could link arms and turn each other round, or make up your own dance moves.
