Baby massage songs and rhymes

Does anyone know any baby massage songs and rhymes? I learnt one the other day 'Criss Cross Apple Sauce' and it is a god send for my eighteen month old and long bus journeys.

If anyone knows any others - I would be very very grateful.

hi maria, could you give me the words for criss cross...

Criss Cross (draw a large cross on baby's back)
Apple Sauce (draw vertical lines down baby's back along spine)
Spiders crawling up your back (tickle up the spine)

Cool Breeze (blow against baby's cheek)
Tight Squeeze (Cuddle)
And now you've got the shivers! (tickle)

'Wind the bobbin up' works well - you can do movements with the arms and legs.

There's one that goes

'Open, close them, open, close them; don't get in a muddle
Open, close them, open, close them; give yourself a cuddle!'


'Round and round the garden, like a teddy bear' works well with circular movements...

I sing:
Round and round the garden, like a garden hose, one step, two step, tickle him on the nose blush

Thanks for the suggestions!

I've been having a go at making some of my own up - but its harder than you'd think./
