Hands Up High (Tune: London Bridge)
First we wave our hands up high
Hands up high, hands up high
First we wave our hands up high
Then we clap them
Then we shake our hands down low
Hands down low, hands down low
Then we shake our hands down low
Then we hide them

How It Went: I only had one family this week, a dad with two sons. A smaller storytime crowd lets you have more one on one interaction with the children and adults but sometimes it backfires if the children are completely uninterested and if the adult isn’t participating. Luckily for me this father and his sons were awesome! The father encouraged his sons to participate and he sang along. I wish I had a bigger turn out but I’m happy to have had such an enthusiastic group.
