Stretch
Reach and wiggle, lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your eyebrows, wiggle your nose.
Put your bottom on the floor,
Count with me: one, two, three four.
Clap your hands now: one, two, three,
Then fold them in your lap like me.

Movement Song: Funny Clowns
Sung to: “Frere Jacques”

Funny clowns, funny clowns,
Jump around, jump around.
Sometimes making faces,
Sometimes running races.
Funny clowns, funny clowns.

Funny clowns, funny clowns,
Spin around, spin around.
Sometimes with a big nose,
Sometimes with two big toes.
Funny clowns, funny clowns.
