Song: “Monkey Dance” – The Wiggles: Yummy Yummy

Song: Let’s Tap our Feet Together (Tune: “The More We Get Together”)
Let’s tap our feet together, together, together,
Let’s tap our feet together, because it’s fun to do.
Let’s clap our hands….
Let’s touch our nose…
Let’s touch our ears…

Rhyme: Great A, little a
Bouncing B,
The cat’s in the cupboard,
But she can’t see me.

Song: (Tune: “The Wheels on the Bus”)

The monkeys in the zoo all touch their toes . . . just like I do.
The monkeys in the zoo all rub their tummies . . .
The monkeys in the zoo all swing their arms . . .
The monkeys in the zoo all pat their heads . . .

Song (with shaky eggs): “No More Monkeys” – Asheba: Animal Playground
