Songs: Open Shut Them

Open, shut them, open, shut them (Open both hands and then make a fist)
Give a little clap, clap, clap. (Clap hands together)
Open, shut them, Open, shut them
Lay them on your lap, lap, lap. (Pat hands in lap)
Creep them, creep them, creep them, creep them (creep fingers from tummy up to mouth)
Right up to your chinny chin, chin
Open wide your little mouth… but do not let them in. (Open mouth wide & hide hands behind back)

Song: A Little Mouse is Creeping

A little mouse is creeping, creeping, creeping (Make creeping motion with hands)
A little mouse is creeping
In the house... Shh… (Put index finger in front of mouth)
A little mouse is sleeping, sleeping, sleeping (Make sleeping motion)
A litter mouse is sleeping in the house. Shh…
An old grey cat comes creeping, creeping, creeping (Make creeping motion with hands)
An old grey cat comes creeping in the house
And they both run away!!! (Pat hands on lap really fast)

Song: The More We Get Together

The more we get together, together, together
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
The more we get together, together, together
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

2, 4, 6, 8 who do we appreciate?

The more we sing together, together, together
The more we sing together the happier we’ll be.
The more we sing together, together, together
The more we sing together the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.
The more we sing together the happier we’ll be.

2, 4, 6, 8 who do we appreciate?

The more we sway together, together, together
The more we sway together the happier we’ll be.
The more we sway together, together, together
The more we sway together the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.
The more we sway together the happier we’ll be.

Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap, clap)
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap, clap)
If you’re happy and you know, and you really want to show it
you’re happy and you know it, clap your hand. (clap, clap)

If you’re happy and you know it, pat your head (pat, pat)
If you’re happy and you know it, pat your head (pat, pat)
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it pat your head. (pat, pat)

(Continue with other actions: beep your nose, wiggle your ears, etc.)
