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.

Skidnmarink a doo.

Skinamarink a dink a dink.
Skinamarink a doo.
I love you.

I love you in the morning.
And in the afternoon.
I love you in the evening.
And underneath the moon.

Skinamarink a dink a dink.
Skinamarink a doo.
I love you.

Little Red Valentine
Little Red Valentine, I love you, I love you, I love you.

Little Heart
I have a little heart,
(place hand over heart)
And it goes thump, thump, thump
(pat chest three times)
It keeps right on beating,
When I jump, jump, jump
(jump three times)
I get a special feeling, when I look at you.
(point to child)
It makes me want to give you a hug or two.
(hug yourself)

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

Baby Time February 13, 2013

Book
Baby, I Love You by Karma Wilson

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
I Love You
I love you, you love me
We’re a happy family
With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you.
Won’t you say you love me too.

I love you, you love me
We’re best friends like friends should be
With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you.
Won’t you say you love me too.

Up and Down (Tune: Farmer in the Dell)
The arms go up and down,
The arms go up and down,
Hi, ho, the derry-o,
The arms go up and down.

The legs go up and down,
The legs go up and down,
Hi, ho, the derry-o,
The legs go up and down.

The More We Get Together
The more we get together,
together, together.
The more we get together,
the happier we’ll be.

For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together,
the happier we’ll be.

Up in the Air
Up, up, up in the air like this.
Down, down, down for a great big kiss.
Up like this, down for a kiss.
You’re my special baby! (big hug)

We’re Going to Kentucky
We’re going to Kentucky,
We’re going to the fair,
To see a senorita with flowers in her hair.

Oh, shake it, baby, shake it,
Shake it all you can.
Shake it like a milkshake,
and pour it in a can.

Oh, shake it to the bottom.
Then shake it to the top.
And shake it round and round and round,
And shake it till you stop.

Acka-Backa Soda Cracker
(Bounce gently or sway)
Acka-backa soda cracker, acka-backa-boo,
Acka-backa soda cracker, I love you.
Acka-backa soda cracker, acka-backa-boo,
Acka-backa soda cracker, (lift) up goes you!
(BIG HUG)
