Give a hug, ladybug (Hug yourself)
Blow a kiss, jellyfish (Blow a kiss)
See you soon, big baboon
Out the door, dinosaur (Point straight ahead)

Wave goodbye, butterfly (Wave goodbye)

Observations

When I read The Duckling Gets a Cookie I would plug my nose for the duckling. The kids got a kick out of it! I do recommend to read this book last if you do this action. I read it first in my first preschool storytime and the kids kept plugging their nose through the rest. I also danced around and asked the kids if they stole the cookies during the “Who Stole the Cookies” song.

Cookies – Toddlers

Opening Song

Well Hello Everybody, Can You Touch Your Nose

Well hello everybody, can you touch your nose,
Touch your nose, touch your nose?
Well hello everybody, can you touch your nose,
touch your nose?

Well hello everybody can you touch your toes,
touch your toes, touch your toes?
Well hello everybody, can you touch your toes,
touch your toes?

Well hello everybody, can you rub your tummy,
rub your tummy, rub your tummy?
Well hello everybody, can you rub your tummy,
rub your tummy?

Observations

The kid really liked the finger rhyme and the flannel. Books were more iffy with my first toddler group while my second toddler group did fantastic. The biggest surprise was the animal crackers during the song. All the kids sat quietly and nicely while I handed out the crackers.
