Hats for Animals – with hats and puppets

Five funny winter hats,
A black one to adore,
A monkey came and bought it –
And now, there are four

Three funny winter hats
One is big and blue
An elephant just bought it
And now, there are two

Four funny winter hats
The stripey one should please
A snake just bought it –
And now, there are three

Two funny winter hats
The straw one’s good for sun
A frog came and bought it
And now there’s only one.

One funny winter hat
It’s very, very small
A mouse came and bought it
The last one of all.

My poor little kitten lost her mitten

My poor little kitten lost her mitten
And started to cry, Boo-Hoo.
So I helped my kitten to look for her mitten,
Her beautiful mitten of BLUE  (so we need to help kitten find her mitten!)

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under my Mother’s bed.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored RED.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under my father’s pillow.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored YELLOW.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
On the hand of my brother’s toy clown.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored BROWN.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under the laundry so clean
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored GREEN.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Inside a grocery bag.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored BLACK.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under the kitchen sink.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored PINK.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Inside my favorite shoe
And this time the mitten was just the right mitten
For it was colored BLUE!

Songs:
(sung to tune of “Are You Sleeping” Provide paper doll and paper clothing to do activity

“It is snowing, it is snowing,
On my head, on my head
I need a hat, I need a hat,
On my head, on my head”

On my feet… (boots)

On my hands…(mittens)

On my neck…(scarf)

 

The Winter Song (tune: Farmer in the Dell)

Let’s sing a winter song,
Let’s sing a winter song,
The days are short, the nights are long.
Let’s sing a winter song.

The winter wind is cold,
The winter wind is cold,
It freezes noses, ears, and toes.
The winter wind is cold.

Winter now is here,
Winter now is here,
Put on your coat, your hat, your gloves,
Winter now is here.

Rhyme: Five Pairs of Dirty Socks
(with Felt Board socks and Washing Machine)

Five pairs of dirty socks
On my bedroom floor
Mom washed the BLUE pair
And then there were four

Four pairs of dirty socks
They belong to me
Dad washed the PINK pair
And then there were three

Three pairs of dirty socks
What’s a kid to do?
Brother washed the RED pair
And then there were two 

Two pairs of dirty socks
I wear them when I run
Sister washed the YELLOW pair
And then there was one

One pair of dirty socks
One and only one
I guess I’ll wash the ORANGE pair
And then there will be none.

No more pairs of dirty socks
We washed them all today,
But wait until tomorrow
More are on the way!

(Hide a pair in the washing machine and have kids guess which color is missing)

Song: On My Head I Wear My Hat

On my head I wear my hat.
It is such a silly hat that my head will wiggle waggle to and fro,
Where else can my silly hat go?

(foot, elbow, knee…)

On my hands I wear my hat.
It is such a quiet hat that my hands don’t wiggle they just go clap.
Then I fold them in my lap.

Song: Mary Wore Her Red Dress

Mary wore her red dress
Red dress, red dress.
Mary wore her red dress
All day long

(Repeat, naming items that the children are wearing)

Clap and Sing Hello! (tune: Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing hello!

We wave and sing hello
We wave and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

We stomp and sing hello,
We stomp and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side
Hold hands at side
Then behind my back they hide
Put hands behind back
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so
Wiggle your fingers
Shake them fast, shake them slow
Shake fingers fast and slow
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap
Clap hands
Then I rest them in my lap
Rest hands in lap
Now they’re quiet as can be.
Because it’s listening time, you see.

Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes.
Knees and toes.
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes.
Knees and toes.

And eyes and ears and mouth and nose.
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes.
Knees and toes.

My Head
(Suit actions to words)
This is the circle that is my head.
This is my mouth with which words are said.
These are my eyes with which I see.
This is my nose that is part of me.
This is the hair that grows on my head.
And this is my hat I wear on my head.

Open Shut Them
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them up to your chin.
Open your mouth, but do not let them in!
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.

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 it, and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap

Stomp your feet
Blink your eyes
Wave goodbye!
