  • Recite the poem "Ride a Cock Horse" to your two-year-old. Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross, To see a fine lady upon a white horse. Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes, Sheshall have music wherever she goes.
  • As you recite the poem, pretend to ride around the room on a horse. If you have a stick horse, that would add to the fun.
  • Next time, ask your child to ride his horse with you. On the words "She shall have music wherever she goes," ride your horses to a different room.
  • When you get to the new room, sing one of your favorite songs.
    • "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"
    • "Mary Had a Little Lamb"
    • "The Wheels on the Bus"
    • Keep repeating the poem, and each time, ride to a new place and "have music wherever you go."
