Storytime: Scarves (Part 2)

And as promised… here is the second part of how I use scarves in my programs. Don’t miss out on the first half which can be found here. I typically sing each song 2-3 times, this way by the end the children and parents know all of the actions.

If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it wave your scarf
If you’re happy and you know it wave your scarf
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it wave your scarf
(throw your scarf)
(play peek-a-boo)

Jack in the Box
Jack in the box (hold scarf in fist)
Sitting so still
Will he come out?
Yes, he will! (throw scarf)

Let’s Go Riding on an Elevator
Let’s go riding on an elevator (wave scarf up and down)
Elevator, elevator
Let’s go riding on an elevator,
Come along with me!
First floor, second, floor, third floor, fourth floor, fifth floor (shake scarf at different heights)
And…down, down, down, down, down (lower scarf to floor)

Little Bo Peep
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep (wave scarf and hide it behind back)
And doesn’t know where to find them (shake head side to side)
Leave them alone and they’ll come home
Wagging their tails behind them (wag scarf out from behind back)

London Bridge
London bridge is falling down (wave scarf up and down)
Falling down, falling down
London bridge if falling down
My fair lady
Build it up with sticks and stones (fist over fist)
Sticks and stones
Built it up with sticks and stones
My fair lady

My Scarf Goes Up and Down (Tune: Farmer in the Dell)
My scarf goes up and down (wave scarf up and down)
My scarf goes up and down
Heigh ho, the derry-o
My scarf goes up and down

My scarf goes round and round  (wave scarf in a circle)
My scarf goes round and round
Heigh ho, the derry-o
My scarf goes round and round

My scarf goes in and out (wave scarf out front and bring in towards you)
My scarf goes in and out
Heigh ho, the derry-o
My scarf goes in and out

One Bright Scarf
One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow (hold scarf out to side)
Wiggle it high (shake overhead)
And wiggle it low (shake on the group)
Shake it fast (shake fast)
And shake it slow (shake slow)
Where did it go? (hide behind back)

Well, at least it’s not a boulder.
Oh, put the scarf on your shoulder.

‘Cause what’s the harm?
Oh, put the scarf on your arm.

Put the scarf on your lap, like that.
Put the scarf on your lap,
It’s such a snap.
Oh, put the scarf on your lap.

That’s where it ought to be.
Oh, put the scarf on your knee.

Put the scarf on your toes, like this.
Put the scarf on your toes, like that.
Put the scarf on your toes,
Yes, this is where it goes.
Oh, put the scarf on your toes.

This is the Way…
This is the way we wash our face (pretend to wash face with scarf)
Wash our face, wash our face,
This is the way we wash our face
So early in the morning
(repeat with other body parts)

Wave Your Scarf (Tune: London Bridge)
Wave your scarf up and down
Up and down, up and down
Wave your scarf up and down
Wave your scarf
(left and right)
(fast and slow)
(high and low)
(round and round)
