Pat-a-Cake
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can
Prick it and pat it and mark it with a “b”
And put it in the oven for Baby and me

Birthday Cake
Ten candles on a birthday cake
(hold up hands with palms facing out and fingers extended)
All lit up for me (wiggle fingers)
I’ll make a wish and blow them out
Watch and you will see.
(blow and bend fingers down)

Make a Cake
Mix the batter, stir the batter (stir)
Shake some flour in (shake)
Mix the batter, stir the batter (stir)
Place it in a tin (pretend to pour)
Sprinkle in some chocolate chips (sprinkle)
Put it in to bake (slide hands forward)
Then open wide the oven door (open)
And out comes the cake! (slide hands forward)

Make a Wish
Big birthday cake
(make huge circle with arms)
Ice cream in a dish
(cup hands)
Here are the candles
(wiggle fingers on one hand)
Now make a wish!
(blow and make fingers into a fist)

Five Candles Fingerplay
Five candles on a birthday cake
Five, and not one more
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves four!

Four candles on a birthday cake,
There for all to see.
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves three!

Three candles on a birthday cake,
Standing straight and true
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves two

Two candles on a birthday cake,
Helping us have fun
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves one

One candle on a birthday cake,
We know its task is done
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves none!

My Birthday Month
If your birthday is in January, turn around.
If your birthday is in February, touch the ground.
If your birthday is in March, march along.
If your birthday is in April, sing a song.
If your birthday is in May, wiggle your nose.
If your birthday is in June, shake your toes.
If your birthday is in July, jump up high.
If your birthday is in August, reach the sky.
If your birthday is in September, tap your shoe.
If your birthday is in October, call out “Boo!”
If your birthday is in November, tickle your ears.
If your birthday is in December, give three cheers.

Fireworks
Fireworks go
snap, snap, snap (snap fingers)
crack, crack, crack (slap knees)
zap, zap, zap (make flashing motions with hands)
Fireworks make me
clap, clap, clap (clap hands)
at our party!

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)
