We Clap and Sing Hello

We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing hello!

We wave and sing hello…
We stomp and sing hello…

Mustache Flannel

There once lived a man named Mr. Lou,
He had a mustache that grew, and GREW!
By Monday, it was as tiny as his nose,
By Tuesday, on and on it grows!
By Wednesday, it stretched as far as his ears!
By Thursday, it looked as if it had grown for years.
But on Friday Mr. Lou caught the flu…
and off went the mustache—it flew and FLEW!

I did something different with this flannel. Instead of making a face, I just made flannel mustaches that I put up to my face.

Actions Rhymes

Ten Little Mustaches (I used mustaches on sticks and slowly added them with each phrase)
Tune: Ten Little Indian

One little, two little, three little mustaches
Four little, five little, six little mustaches
Seven little, eight little, nine little mustaches
Ten little mustaches under your nose

Hands on Shoulders

Hands on shoulders, hands on knees,
Hands behind you, if you please.
Touch your hair,
Now your toes.
Hands up high in the air,
Down at your sides, now touch your hair.
Hands up high, as before.
Now Clap your hands, one, two, three, four!

Barber, Barber, Shave a Pig

(Sung to “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”)

Barber, Barber, shave a Pig
How many hairs will make a wig?
Four and twenty, that’s enough
Then pat the pig with a powder puff

Charley Needs A Haircut

Charley needs a haircut, (make scissor fingers on hair)
Doesn’t want to go (shake head “no”)
Even though the barber
Has three chairs in a row (hold up 3 fingers)
One for Charley’s father (fold down one finger)
One for brother Ken (fold down second finger)
Another chair for Charley
Will he go, or has he been? (wiggle finger back & forth)

A fellow blogger did something like this, but I decided to change it up and cut out the center so the kids could put their faces through it.

Closing Goodbye Song

We Clap Goodbye Like This

We clap goodbye like this,
We clap goodbye like this,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap goodbye like this.

We wave goodbye like this…
We stomp goodbye like this…


Book-O-Beards is awesome! It’s short and funny. The kids also loved the flannel. They requested that I do it several times.
