Bath & Bubbles Story Time (2020)

Welcome Song: Clap and Sing Hello (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!

We tap and sing hello (tap knees) //
We stretch and sing hello (stretch arms up) //
We wave and sing hello (wave)

Book: Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion; pictures by Margaret Bloy Graham

harry the dirty dog

Harry hates baths. So he buries his scrub brush in the yard and runs away. He has many adventures where he gets dirtier and dirtier, eventually returning home to his family. But will anyone recognize him?

Song/Scarves: Popcorn Kernels (to the tune of Frere Jacques; sing each line twice)
Popcorn kernels, (wave scarves overhead)
In the pot. (make scarves ‘disappear’ by bunching them in their fists)
Shake them, shake them, shake them, (shake)
’til they POP! (throw scarves into the air)

Song/Scarves: One Bright Scarf (to the tune of 10 Little Indians)
One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow, (hold in hand)
Wiggle it high, (wiggle above head)
Wiggle it low, (wiggle by knees)
Shake it fast, (shake fast)
Shake it slow, (shake slow)
Put it behind your back. (put scarf behind your back)
Where did it go? (bring out empty hands; shrug)

Song/Scarves: We Wave Our Scarves Together (to the tune of For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow)
We wave our scarves together,
We wave our scarves together,
We wave our scarves together,
Because it’s fun to do!

We wave them high, (sing/wave high)
We wave them low, (sing/wave low)
We wave them in the middle,
Because it’s fun to do!

We throw our scarves together,
We throw our scarves together,
We throw our scarves together,
Because it’s fun to do!

We throw them high, (throw/sing high)
We throw them low, (throw/sing low)
We throw them in the middle,
Because it’s fun to do!

Book: The Pigeon Needs a Bath! by Mo Willems

the pigeon needs a bath

Pigeon doesn’t need a bath. He just took one last month. And who cares if the flies think he smells?

Song: 10 Little Bubbles (to the tune of 10 Little Indians)
One little, two little, three little bubbles,
Four little, five little, six little bubbles,
Seven little, eight little, nine little bubbles,
Ten little bubbles go POP!

Pop, pop, pop the bubbles,
Pop, pop, pop the bubbles,
Pop, pop, pop the bubbles,
Bubble, bubble POP!

I got this song from my son’s daycare teacher.

Egg Shakers: I Know a Chicken by Laurie Berkner

I forgot my Bluetooth speaker AGAIN.

Craft: Bath tub finger painting

IMG_4256

I got this idea from Crafty Morning. I didn’t want to hand cut every bath tub so I found a pattern on Clipart Panda and printed it out on card stock. I found the rubber ducky clipart here. I set out every color of finger paint along with glue sticks so they could glue the ducky to their project.

I also set out Q-tips in case any of the kids didn’t like the feel of paint on their fingers. Turns out most of them preferred using the Q-tips and they served as fine paint brushes as well. 🙂
