OPENING SONGS:

 Welcome Everyone!

Welcome, welcome everyone,

Now we’re here, let’s have some fun!

First we clap our hands just so,

Then we bend and touch our toes,

Welcome, welcome everyone.

Now we’re here, let’s have some fun!

Clap Everybody and Say Hello!

Clap everybody and say hello,

Clap everybody and say hello,

Clap everybody and say hello,

No matter what the weather….

Stamp everybody and say hello,

Stamp everybody and say hello,

Stamp everybody and say hello,

No matter what the weather….

Repeat chorus with

(Wiggle, Jump, Sing…)

(Kathy Reid-Naiman – Sally Go Round the Sun CD)

BOUNCES:

Dickery Dickery Dare!

Dickery, dickery dare! (bounce baby on lap)

The pig flew up in the air! (lift baby up into the air)

The man in brown brought him back down… (bring baby down)

Dickery, dickery dare! (bounce baby on lap)

The Grand Old Duke of York!

The grand old Duke of York

He had 10,000 men

He marched them up to the top of the hill (lift baby up in the air)

And he marched them down again (bring baby down)

And when they’re up, they’re up (lift baby up again)

And when they’re down, they’re down (bring baby down again)

And when they’re only halfway up (bring baby halfway up)

They’re neither up nor down! (bring baby up, then down)

FIRST BOOK:  WHAT’S THE MATTER BUNNY BLUE?

Bunny Blue has lost his granny…what’s a bunny to do?  Well his friends help and there is a very happy ending!

MOVEMENT:

 Clap, Tap & Bend

I take my little hands and go clap, clap, clap

I take my little hands and go clap, clap, clap

I take my little hands and go clap, clap, clap

Clap, clap all day long!

I take my little feet and go tap, tap, tap

I take my little feet and go tap, tap, tap

I take my little feet and go tap, tap, tap

Tap, tap all day long!

I take my little knees and go bend, bend, bend

I take my little knees and go bend, bend, bend

I take my little knees and go bend, bend, bend

Bend, bend all day long!

SECOND BOOK:  PEEK-A-BLOOM

A beautiful lift-the-flap book that keeps baby guessing – who’s hiding behind the cabbage, the hen, the tree?  Guess who?  Peek-a-______?

OUR TRIP to BOSTON:

(bouncing baby on knee throughout the songs)

This is the Way the Ladies Ride

This is the way the ladies ride

Jiggity jog, jiggity jog

This is the way the ladies ride

Jiggity, jiggity jog!

This is the way the gentlemen ride

Gallop and trot, gallop and trot

This is the way the gentlemen ride

Gallop and gallop and trot!

This is the way the farmers ride

Hobbledy hoy, hobbled hoy

This is the way the farmers ride

Hobbledy, hobbled hoy!

Trot to Boston

Trot trot to Boston town to get a stick of candy

One for you and one for me and one for Dicky Dandy!

Trot trot to Boston town to get a stick of candy

One for you and one for me and one for Dicky Dandy!

Trot Trot Trot

Trot trot trot, go and never stop

Where to smooth and where to stony

Trot along my little pony

Go and never stop

Trot trot trot trot!

 Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are…

TICKLE TIME:

Round and round the garden (circle baby’s belly with fingers)

Goes the teddy bear  (walk fingers around baby’s belly button)

A one-step, a two-step (walk fingers from baby’s belly button to chin)

A tickle under there!!! (tickle baby under chin)

CLOSING SONGS:

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (see lyrics under nursery rhyme)

Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout

Down came the rain and washed the spider out!

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain

And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again!

Mr. Moon (lullaby)

Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon you’re out too soon

The sun is still in the sky…

So get back to your bed and cover up your head,

And wait til the day goes  by…

(repeat once more)

(Carol Hammett & Elaine Bueffel – Toddlers On Parade CD)

Goodbye Babies (in sign) (to the tune of Hello Ladies…)

Goodbye babies, goodbye babies, goodbye babies…it’s time to say goodbye.
