Information About Pat-a-cake Pat-a-cake

"Pat-a-cake Pat-a-cake" is an old English nursery rhyme dating to at least the 17th century. The earliest record was from an appearance, by some of the lines from the rhyme, in Thomas D'Urfey's play "The Campaigners", dated 1698. A version of the rhyme closer to the one we are familiar with today appeared in "Mother Goose's Melody" around 1765.

Children will usually claps hands between themselves, while singing the rhyme, as a form of clapping game which can become quite complex.

You can also use your childs name. Instead of using the "B" Use the first letter of your childs name and then when it says baby use your childs name. I like to sing this to my son.
