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.)

SongBugs (Tune: Frere Jacques) (Are You Sleeping)

Big bugs, small bugs, big bugs, small bugs,

See them crawl, see them crawl.

Creepy, creepy, crawling, never, never falling.

Bugs, bugs, bugs. Bugs, bugs, bugs.

 

Repeat as many times as you like.

 

Rhyme: The Beehive 

Here is a beehive, but where are all the bees? (Point to fisted hand.)

Hidden inside were nobody sees.             

Watch and they’ll come out.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – Bzzzzzzz!!!!!       (Lift 1 finger at a time of fisted hand, then shake all fingers and say Bzzzz.
 

SongThe Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider

Climbed up the waterspout.

Down came the rain and 

Washed the spider out.

Out came the sun 

And dried up all the rain.

And the itsy bitsy spider

Climbed up the spout again.

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.
