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)

Song: I Am Looking

I am looking, I am looking (put hand over eyebrows)

I see blue, I see blue, (hold up blue sky card)

The color of the sky, the color of the sky,

I see blue, I see blue.


I am looking, I am looking (put hand over eyebrows)

I see yellow, I see yellow, (hold up yellow sun card)

The color of the sun, the color of the sun,

I see yellow, I see yellow.


I am looking, I am looking (put hand over eyebrows)

I see green, I see green, (hold up blue sky card)

The color of a leaf, the color of a leaf,

I see green, I see green.


I am looking, I am looking (put hand over eyebrows)

I see red, I see red, (hold up red apple card)

The color of an apple, the color of an apple,

I see red, I see red.


I am looking, I am looking (put hand over eyebrows)

I see orange, I see orange, (hold up blue sky card)

The color of a carrot, the color of a carrot,

I see orange, I see orange.
