Hooray for Hat by Brian Won

Action Rhyme:

“Here are Grandma’s Glasses”

Here are Grandma’s glasses. (make circles over eyes)

Here is Grandma’s cap. (place hands on head)

This is how she folders her hands,

And puts them in her lap. (hands folded in lap).

Here are Grandpa’s glasses. (make circles over eyes)

And here is Grandpa’s hat. (hands make big hat)

And this is how he folds his arms- (folds arms)

Then he takes a nap (hands under cheek)

Snuggle Puppy by Sandra Boynton

Action Rhyme:

“Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear”

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around,

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground,

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, show your shoes,

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, I love you.

(Most of my babies are on the older end for babystorytime so they’re practically toddlers, but this is easily adapted for baby babies i.e. caregiver hold the baby while standing, caregiver twist baby in lap instead of turning all around etc.)

Action Rhyme:

“Eye Winker”

Eye winker, (point to eyes)

Tom Tinker, (point to ears)

Nose smeller, (point to nose)

Mouth eater, (point to mouth)

Chin chopper, (tap chin)

Chin chopper, (tap chin)

Chin chopper, (tap chin)

Chin chopper, chin. (tickle under chin)

Little Cloud by Eric Carle

Action Rhyme:

“I’m a Little Cloud” (to the tune of I’m a Little Tea Pot)

I’m a little cloud, in the sky (have fingertips meet in circle above head)

You can find me way up high (stretch arms and stand on tippy toes)

Sometimes I’m puffy (put hands on hips to make you “puffy”)

Sometimes stretched out (hands at sides)

I just love to float about (move side to side with hands stretched out)

Parachute Activity

“Mr. Sun”

Placed colored scarves on the parachute as our clouds and sang “Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, Please shine down on me” multiple times (fast, slow, bouncing the clouds, under the parachute etc)
