Terrific Twos Storytime: Bedtime


Clap Your Hands
(From the Old Town School of Folk Music CD “Songs for Wiggleworms”)

ABCs

Open/Shut Them
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap clap clap clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap lap lap
Creep them crawl them, creep them crawl them
Right up to your chinny chin chin
Open wide your little mouth- but do not let them in!

Count to 10 and Back

A Number Slumber by Suzanne Bloom


Dance Your Fingers Up
Dance your fingers up, dance your fingers down
Dance your fingers to the side, dance them all around
Dance them on your shoulders, dance them on your head
Dance them on your tummies, and put the all to bed
From Best Kids Book Site

My Thumbs Are Starting to Wiggle
Tune: The Bear Went Over the Mountain
My thumbs are starting to wiggle,
My thumbs are starting to wiggle,
My thumbs are starting to wiggle,
Body is starting to wiggle: around and around and around!
And now so are my hands/arms/toes/feet...
(Sing about other body parts as wiggles spread!)

Breathing Ball

Tuck Me In by Dean Hacohen and Sherry Scharschmidt
* This was a HUGE hit with the two year old! I highly recommend it for storytimes


Five Monkeys Jumping on the Bed + Ukulele

This Is the Way We Wash + Scarves
This is the way we wash our arms, wash our arms, wash our arms
This is the way we wash our arms, when we get ready for bed
[continue with as many body parts as you like]

Get Out Of My Bath! by Britta Teckentrup
* I don't usually read a third book for my two year old group, but this one worked out really well. It's pretty short, and kids loved using their scarves to follow along with the motions of the book.


Bubbles in the Air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air, there are bubbles in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high, way up high in the sky
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low, and they tickle on your toes
There are bubbles way down low, way down low

Goodbye Song
(to the tune of She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain)
The goodbye train is leaving see you soon (toot toot)
The goodbye train is leaving see you soon (toot toot)
The goodbye train is leaving, the goodbye train is leaving
The goodbye train is leaving see you soon (toot toot)
