Rhyme: “When the Cat Goes Walking” (with mice puppets)
When the cat goes walking
Her feet make so sound
But the bell around her neck (do the sign for bell)
warns all the mice around
If they don’t hear the bell,
then mice come out to play (puppets jump and dance)
But when they hear a “ring-a-ling”
then they run away (puppets run away)

Rhyme: You put the oil in the pot and you let it get hot,
You put the popcorn in and you start to grin,
Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, POP! (wiggle baby, then lift)

Rhyme: Tick tock, tick tock, I’m a little cuckoo clock (swing baby side to side)
Tick tock, tick tock, stop!
What time is it? It’s one-o-clock.
Cuckoo! (lift baby)

Rhyme: Little clock, big clock

The little clock goes tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock (swing baby side to side while standing)
The big clock goes ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong (swing back front to back)

Song: “Frere Jacques” – Music for Little People: Toddler Favorites

Song: “There’s a Bell on My Head” (Tune: “There’s a Spider on the Floor”)

There’s a bell on my head, on my head,
There’s a bell on my head, on my head,
Oh, let it be said, there’s a bell on my head,
There’s a bell on my head, on my head.

There’s a bell on my arm…It’s not doing any harm but there’s a bell on my arm,

There’s a bell on my leg…Oh, help me, I beg, there’s a bell on my leg,

There’s a bell on my toe…Oh, wouldn’t you know, there’s a bell on my toe,

Rhyme: “When the Cat Goes Walking”
When the cat goes walking (tiptoe)
Her feet make no sound
But the bell around her neck
warns all the mice around (do the sign for bell)
If they don’t hear the bell,
then mice come out to play (jump and dance)
But when they hear a “ring-a-ling”
then they run away (run in place)

Oh, let it be said, there’s a bell on my head,
There’s a bell on my head, on my head.

There’s a bell on my arm…It’s not doing any harm but there’s a bell on my arm,

There’s a bell on my hand…Oh, isn’t it grand, there’s a bell on my hand,
