Songs: Open Shut Them 

Open, shut them (Open both hands and then make a fist)
Open, shut them
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.)

Rhyme: Pat-a-Cake

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake baker's man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it and roll it and mark it with "B"
And put it in the oven for baby and me!

 

Song: Where are the Babies (Tune: Frere Jacques)

Where is bear cub? Where is bear cub?
Here I am! Here I am!
How are you today, bear?
Very well, thank you.
 Bye, bye bear. Bye, bye bear!

 

Where is fawn? Where is fawn?)….
 Where is giraffe calf?  Where is giraffe calf? 

Where is joey? Where is joey?

Where is lion cub? Where is lion cub?

 

RhymeFingers Wiggle Waggle

Fingers like to wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle.
 Fingers like to wiggle waggle way up high!

Fingers like to wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle,

Fingers like to wiggle waggle way down low!

Fingers like to wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle.

Fingers like to wiggle waggle on my knee!

Again!

 

(Say the word “high” in a high voice, say the word “low” in a low voice. Repeat.)

 

Song: We Wave Our Scarves Together (Tune: For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow)

We wave our scarves together

We wave our scarves together

We wave our scarves together

Because it’s fun to do!

Wave ‘em up high

Wave ‘em down low

Wave ‘em in the middle

Because it’s fun to do!

 

We throw our scarves together

We throw our scarves together

We throw our scarves together

Because it’s fun to do!

We throw ‘em up high

We throw ‘em down low

We throw ‘em in the middle

Because it’s fun to do!

 

 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.)

 

Closing Song:

Now this is the end of storytime, storytime, storytime.
This is the end of storytime.
I’m glad you were here.
 I’m so glad you were here.
