Two and three year olds like doing the actions of this rhyme. It’s fun anytime, but even more fun on a rainy day or in the bathtub. The actions help the child understand the meaning of the words. This can also be a peek-a-boo game for babies.
Rain is falling down. Splash (Wiggle fingers on both hands as you move them downward. Slap both thighs)! Rain is falling down. Splash! Pitter, patter, pitter, patter (Alternatingly slap both thighs). Rain is falling down. Splash! Sun is peeking out. Peek (cover face with hands, like peek-a-boo)! Sun is peeking out. Peek! Peeking here, peeking there. Sun is peeking out. Peek!
