A Game To Play
tune: Looby Lou

Here is a game to play,
Here is a game we like,
We can play it in the day,
We can play it in the night.

We tap our heads like this,
We tap our heads like that,
Tap one and two-once more will do,
So give it one more pat.

Additional Verses:
We tap our tummies, etc.
We tap our knees, etc.
We tap our toes, etc.

There is a sticker on my nose on my nose
There is a sticker on my nose and that's the way it goes...a sticker on my nose, on my nose.

There is a sticker on my chin, on my chin
There is a sticker on my chin, on my chin
There is a sticker on my chin....open my mouth...Dont let it in
There is a sticker on my chin on my chin

There is a sticker on my ear,on my ear
There is a sticker on my ear, on my ear
There is a sticker on my ear...Oh how did it get there...a sticker on my ear on my ear

Repeat with various body parts...just make a verse up!

Jiggle Giggle

Play some bouncy music. Have the children stand facing you, and ask them to jiggle the body part you call out. Start with arm, head, etc. Then move on to harder body parts (calf, thigh).

Skicky Tape
Need: different types of tape

Cut strips of masking and cellophane tape and partially attach them to the edge of a table.

Two's love tape! Use the tape to identify body parts. Ask the children to place a piece of tape on the body part you name (Place tape on your nose, knee...).

See and Say

A simple game to teach both listening skills and following directions. With the children sitting in a circle give commands such as "touch your fingers to your toes" or "put your hand on your thigh." When the children do this well give two instructions at once, "put one hand on your head and the other hand on your tummy."

*Snack

Make A Face
Need: Vanilla pudding, gumdrops, marshmallows, chocolate chips, coconut

Spoon pudding into wide mouth cups. Let children create faces with the chocolate chips, marshmallows, etc...
