Singing songs and rhymes....

So what songs and rhymes do you sing to your toddlers? I need help. Julia keeps asking me and signing to me "more" once I sing itsy-bitsy spider and you are my sunshine and abc... I have few songs and or singing rhymes I can remember from when I was a kid. Help me remember some and teach me some new things to sing to her.

She hears me sing - rhyme...

itsy-bitsy spider
old mcdonald
you are my sunshine
I love you (barney... sshhhhh, don't tell the hubby I do this because he HATES barney).
the wheels on the bus
a few songs from swim class

I need some more fun interactive ones for her to learn from me... help!

Bailey loves Jingle Bells for some reason. Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, Jesus Loves Me (there are signs for it, that are pretty simple and she can do), No More Monkeys Jumping On the Bed (she shakes her finger), Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Be Patient, If You're Happy and You Know It... those are some of our favorites. I'm sure there are more that we do that I'm just not thinking of. -Tara @ www.twolinesonastick.com

We do all of the above, plus rock-a-bye baby and hush little baby, sing a song of sixpence, and some Beatles as well!

Ummmm . . . will have to check back when more people have left you suggestions. Looking for some myself!

The two I am currently trying to learn are ladybugs picnic and mister sun.

I also love the Philadelphia Chickens book/cd. They are not traditional but very fun.
