Wind the Bobbin Up

-trad. Mother Goose

Wind the bobbin up,

Wind the bobbin up,

Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap.

Wind it back again,

Wind it back again,

Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap.

Point to the ceiling.

Point to the floor.

Point to the window.

Point to the door.

Put your hands together, 1-2-3.

Do a roly-poly and put them on your knees.

Away we go, away we go!

Rig-a-jig-jig and away we go,

Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho!

They eat bananas (banana sign – peel finger)

Not cheese (wag finger)

They’re monkeys (scratch top of head and under arm)


Play Our Drum

From Books for Babies by Fred Faulkes

Loudly, loudly play our drums!

Loudly, loudly play our drums!

Softly, softly play our drums.

Softly, softly play our drums.

S-l-o-w-l-y, s-l-o-w-l-y play our drums.

Quickly, quickly play our drums.

I Have a Little Turtle

-jbrary.com

I have a little turtle (make a fist with thumb on top. Cover thumb with other hand.)

His name is Tiny Tim I put him in the bathtub (move ‘turtle’ forward and down like it’s getting into the tub.)

To see if he could swim. (mime swimming.)

He drank up all the water (pretend to drink a glass of water) Glug, glug, glug.

He ate up all the soap (pretend to gobble up the soap) yum, yum, yum.

And now he’s home sick in bed (do a sleeping pose) with bubbles in his throat! (stroke throat)

Bubble, bubble, bubble, (roll hands while saying bubble)

Bubble, bubble, POP! (clap hands on POP)

Bubble, bubble, bubble,

Bubble, bubble, POP!


Bouncing

See how I’m bouncing, bouncing, bouncing,

See how I’m bouncing like a ball.

I didn’t know I could bounce so high!

You didn’t know I could sit so still

See how I’m bouncing, bouncing, bouncing,

When I get tired then DOWN I fall.


Five Sticky Lollipops

Five sticky lollipops fixed on sticks,

Take a sticky lollipop and lick lick lick

4 sticky lollipops…

3 sticky lollipops…

2 sticky lollipops…

1 sticky lollipop…

No sticky lollipops fixed on sticks.

No sticky lollipops to lick lick lick.


Popcorn Chant

You put the oil in the pot and get it real hot.

You put the popcorn in and give a big grin (Smile)

Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle (move hands back and forth)

Sizzle, Sizzle, Sizzle Pop!


Sticky Bubble Gum

By Carole Peterson

Sticky, sticky, sticky bubble gum, bubble gum, bubble gum.

Sticky, sticky, sticky bubble gum, bubble gum, bubble gum.

Stick it to my ____ (kids shout out body part) 


Open Them, Shut Them

Open them, shut them,

Open them, shut them,

Give a little clap.

Open them, shut them,

Open them, shut them,

Put them in your lap.

Creep them , creep them,

Creep them, creep them,

Right up to your chin.

Open up your little mouth,

But do not let them in.

Shake them, shake them,

Shake them, shake them,

Shake them just like this.

Now roll them, roll them,

Roll them, roll them,

Blow a little kiss. 


Hippopotamus Chant

A hip, a hip, a hippopotamus

Got up, got up, got up on a bus

And all, and all, and all the people said,

“Oh, you’re squishing us.”

A cow, a cow, got up on the bus

A cow, a cow, got up on the bus

And all, and all, and all the people said,

“Mooooooove over.”

A sheep, a sheep, got up on the bus

A sheep, a sheep, got up on the bus

And all, and all, and all the people said,

“Baaaaack up.”

A snake, a snake, got up on the bus

A snake, a snake got up on the bus

And all, and all, and all the people said,

“Ssssssssit down.”

Hinges

I’m all made of hinges

‘Cause everything bends,

From the top of my head

Right down to my ends,

I’m hinges in front

And I’m hinges in back,

But I have to have hinges

Or else I would crack!
