Kindness Story Time – Toddler

Opening Song

Sign Language: Kindness

Rhyme (with puppet): Little hedgehog in a bag, sitting so still.
Will she come out? Yes, she will!
She looks to the left, and she looks to the right.
She looks straight ahead, then POPS! out of sight.

Song: “Love Grows One by One” – Stuart Stott and Tom Pease: Celebrate!

Rhyme: Zoom zoom zoom, we’re going to the moon!
Zoom zoom zoom, we’re going to the moon!
If you want to take a trip, climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom zoom zoom, we’re going to the moon,
In 5…4…3…2…1…BLAST OFF!

Rhyme: When I stretch up, I feel so tall.
When I bend down, I feel so small.
Taller, taller, taller, taller,
Smaller, smaller, smaller, smaller,
Into a tiny ball.

Song: “We’ll Wave Hello Together” (tune of “Farmer in the Dell”)
We’ll wave hello together,
We’ll wave hello together,
We’ll wave hello together,
‘Cause it’s fun to do.

We’ll give a hug together…
We’ll say “peace” together…
We’ll high five together…
We’ll sit down and listen…
