Put Your Hands Up High

Put your hands up high,
put your hands down low,
Put your hands in the middle and wiggle to and fro.
Put your elbows in the front, put your elbows in the back,
Put your elbows in the middle and say “quack, quack, quack!”

Closing Song:

We Wave Goodbye Like This
Tune: Farmer in the Dell
We wave goodbye like this.
We wave goodbye like this.
We clap our hands for all our friends.
We wave goodbye like this.
