Introduction Tickle The Moon
Tickle the Moon
Tickle your toes.
Clap your hands
And tickle your nose.
Reach up high.
Reach down low.
Turn around,
And say hello!Source: Storytime Katie has a closing version she found on pinterest. I wanted an opening song, so my coworker reworked it to make an opening song.

Source: I did a similar rhyme for my Elephant and Piggie storytime. However, I just added the pigeon line with the help of my colleague and a volunteer.

Source: My colleague and I worked on this one together. It can be kind of awkward as there is an extra letter than the original BINGO song. My recommendation is to put the G-G close together while clapping. It does work with some practice.

Goodbye Song Tickle the Stars
Tickle the Stars
Tickle your toes
