Centre for Road Safety

Hold a grown-up's hand

Watch the video from the ABC and our partners at Kids and Traffic, the NSW Early Childhood Road Safety Education Program at Macquarie University.

Sing and learn

Working with Kids and Traffic at Macquarie University, we developed a CD and song book, Road Safety Songs and Rhymes for Young Children.

The CD helps teach young children about road safety using well-known songs and nursery rhymes – with a road safety twist. Music can be an effective way of helping young children learn about their world and is beneficial in early childhood programs.

The CD is provided free to NSW Children’s Services via the Kids and Traffic road safety education program. 
Three songs
 from the CD can be downloaded, with the lyrics as follows:


Children singing songs.

I’m a little seatbelt

(Sung to the tune of I’m A Little Teapot)

I’m a little seatbelt in the car,
Before we go driving near or far,
Time to slip your arms in, there you are,
Buckle me up, now you’re a star.
I’m a little seatbelt in the car,
Before we go driving near or far,
Time to slip your arms in, there you are,
Buckle me up, now you’re a star.

Everybody do this

Everybody do this, do this, do this
Everybody do this,
Just like me!
Everybody click-clack, click-clack, click-clack,
Everybody click-clack,
Front and back!
Everybody click-clack, click-clack, click-clack,
Everybody click-clack,
Girls and boys!
Everybody click-clack, click-clack, click-clack,
Everybody click-clack,
Mums and dads!
Everybody click-clack, click-clack, click-clack,
Everybody click-clack,
In the car!

When we’re walking

(Sung to the tune of Rain Is Falling Down)

Hold a grown-up’s hand, hold a grown-up’s hand,
When we’re walking to the shops,
Hold a grown-up’s hand.
Hold a grown-up’s hand, hold a grown-up’s hand,
When we’re walking near the cars,
Hold a grown-up’s hand.
Hold a grown-up’s hand, hold a grown-up’s hand,
When we walk across the road,
Hold a grown-up’s hand.
Hold a grown-up’s hand, hold a grown-up’s hand,
When we walk across the road,
Hold a grown-up’s hand.
