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 . . .

Flannel: Five Clean and Squeaky Pigs (Tune: “Five Green and Speckled Frogs”)


Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink! Oink!
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a big THUD
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs.

Song: (Get out scarves and pretend they are washcloths while singing this song. Tune: “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush.”)

This is the way we wash our arms
Wash our arms, wash our arms
This is the way we wash our arms
When we’re in the bathtub.

Also wash our legs, heads, tummies . . .

Rhyme: One, two, three, Baby’s on my knee.
Rooster crows, And away he goes.

Rhyme: Pizza, pickle, pumpernickel
My little baby deserves a tickle! (tickle)
One for her nose, and one for her toes
And one for her belly where the hot dog goes!
