Now It’s Time to Fly Our Kites  (Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Now it’s time to fly our kites
Fly our kites, fly our kites
Now it’s time to fly our kites
On this windy day.

Now our kites go up, up, up
Down, down, down, up, up, up
Now our kites go up, up, up
On this windy day.

Now our kites go all around
All around, all around
Now our kites go all around
On this windy day.

A is for Alligator
A is for alligator CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP (clap your hands with arms out straight in front of you)
B is for balloon POP POP POP (clap hands)
C is for circle, turn around (turn around)
D is for dizzy, let’s sit down. (sit down)

Wind, Oh, Wind Poem

Wind, oh wind, oh wind, I say–
What are you blowing away today?
Scarves, oh scarves, oh scarves, I say,
I am blowing the scarves away.

5 Balloons
Five balloons up in the sky
See them flying way up high?
If one of those balloons should happen to POP!
Only 4 balloons will be left floating up top! (3…2…1…)

Balloon Fingerplay

I’m going to blow up this balloon
(make a circle with hands)
And never ever stop (shake head)
I’ll blow and blow and blow and blow and blow and (blow and spread hands ever wider until . . .)
POP! (Clap hands)

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

Zoom, zoom, zoom (brush hands together)
We’re going to the moon.
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We’re going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip (creep fingers up arm)
climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom, zoom, zoom (brush hands together)
We’re going to the moon.
In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (crouch down lower and lower)
Blast off! (jump up high)

Up and Down Action Rhyme

Up and down
Round and Round
Put your fingers on the ground
Over, Under, Inbetween
Now my fingers can’t be seen
Hands in front
Hands behind
Now my hands I cannot find
Here is my left hand
Here is my right
Hands and fingers back in sight!
