Ah-Choo! Ah-Choo!
Farmer’s nose tingles (point to nose)
Farmer’s nose twitches (wiggle puppet)
And he is going to sneeze!
Ah-choo, ah-choo, ah-choo!
Ah-choo, ah-choo, ah-choo!

Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down
And broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.
Up Jack got
And home did trot
As fast as he could caper
Went to bed
And plastered his head
With vinegar and brown paper.|

All the Little Germs
All the little germs, dirty and mean,
Hiding on your palms, (point to palms)
Where they cannot be seen.
Wash them, (rub hands together)
Scrub them, (rub knuckles together)
Rinse them away. (whisk hands together)
Then we’ll have clean hands, (hold hands out)
Hip, hip, hooray!

Five Little Monkeys
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
So Momma called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

(continue counting down)

Five Nasty Germs

Five nasty germs were going out to play,
Along came the water and washed one away! Four nasty germs trying to have some fun,
Along came the soap and one had to run!
Then three nasty germs tried to make you sick, But along came the scrubbing and said “You’re not going to stick!”
Two nasty germs got into a fight,
Along came the rinse and washed one out of sight!
One nasty germ thought it couldn’t be seen, Along came a towel and your hand was nice and clean!

John Brown’s Baby
John Brown’s baby had a cold upon his chest
John Brown’s baby had a cold upon his chest
John Brown’s baby had a cold upon his chest
And they rubbed it with camphorated oil.

I’ve Got a Cold
I’ve got a cold                   (point to yourself)
My nose can’t smell        (point to your nose)
My eyes are red               (point to your eyes)
I don’t feel well                (hand on forehead)
So I’ll drink my meds        (pretend to drink)
And go to bed…                (fold hands under head)
My nose feels better       (point to nose)
And so does my head!    (point to head)

The Bandage Song
(Tune: The Farmer in the Dell)
Put a bandage on my knee,
Put a bandage on my knee
Oh please take care of me
Put bandage on my knee.

Put a bandage on my head,
Put a bandage on my head
Oh please put me to bed
Put bandage on my head.

The Handwashing Song
Tops and bottoms, tops and bottoms
In between, in between
Scrub them all together, scrub them all together Now we’re clean, squeaky clean
