3 Month Play & Learn Activities ( )

Pony Rides

As your baby increases her neck strength and head control, you can take her on some gentle pony rides. Choose a favourite nursery rhyme, or sing the ones below.


  • Your knee
  • Small, soft blanket or towel


  • Lay a small, soft blanket or towel over your knee, for your baby's comfort.
  • Seat your baby on your knee, facing you, and hold her arms for support.
  • As you recite a rhyme, gently bounce your baby up and down.
  • Repeat the rhyme several times before moving on to another. Following are some rhymes to try:

    Humpty Dumpty 
    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
    All the king's horses and all the king's men,
    Couldn't put Humpty together again.

    To Market, to Market 
    To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
    Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.
    To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
    Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.

    One, Two, Bounce My Shoe
    One, two, bounce my shoe;
    Three, four, tap the floor;
    Five, six, give a kick;
    Seven, eight, legs stand straight;
    Nine, ten, start again.


Don't bounce your baby too hard, and always hold her so she doesn't fall.
