Criss Cross Applesauce
Criss, cross, applesauce (draw x on child’s back)
Spiders running up your back (walk fingers up back)
Cool breeze (blow gently)
Tight squeeze (hug)
Now you’ve got the shivers! (tickle)

Baby Faces
Sometime baby faces cry. (pretend to cry)
Sometimes they will smile. (encourage big smiles)
Sometimes they will close their eyes. (encourage closing eyes)
And sleep for a while!. (tip head to one side and close eyes)
Night-night, babies.

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe
One, two, buckle my shoe.
Three, four, open the door.
Five, six, pick up sticks.
Seven, eight, lay them straight.
Nine, ten, do it again!
One, two, buckle my shoe.
Three, four, open the door.
Five, six, pick up sticks.
Seven, eight, lay them straight .
Nine, ten, a big fat hen!

Hands Up High
Tune: London Bridge
First we wave our hands up high
Hands up high, hands up high
First we wave our hands up high
Then we clap them
Then we shake our hands down low
Hands down low, hands down low
Then we shake our hands down low
Then we hide them

We Wave Our Scarves Together
Tune: The Bear Went Over the Mountain
We wave our scarves together (3 times)
Because it’s fun to do
We wave them up high
We wave them down low
We wave them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do

We throw our scarves together (3 times)
We throw them up high
We throw them down low
We throw them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do
