Construction Story Time (OUTDOOR 2021)

They’re rebuilding the playground next to the gazebo where we hold storytime so I decided to embrace it and do a construction-theme. 🙂

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)

It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, (tap knees)
Goodbye!

Goodbye!
It’s time to say goodbye …
Wave your hands and wink your eye!
Oh, it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends,
Goodbye! (wave)
