Flying High

Add To Basket

This is an interaction song, where the children ( with the help of teachers if needed) hold 1 large piece of cloth up in a big circle. Place a little soft toy bird in the middle of it. At first the song sings of the bird being asleep and the cloth must be kept very still. Then in the chorus the bird is flying high, so wave the cloth and make the bird fly in the air, always trying to keep the bird over the cloth! To make it more of a game, if the bird touches one of the children, when flying, they are out. Great for a party game too!

Little Hedgehog

Add To Basket

This is an action song. Children curl up in a ball on the floor and pretend to be asleep. Then when the song sings of Summer coming, they wake up and shake up! It is fun to use coloured scarves for them to shake!

An Elephant Plays A Drum Today

As it’s name suggests, this is a percussion song. First play the drums slowly and loudly like an elephant moving. Then play them like a mouse, very fast and quietly.

Serengeti Water Hole

Add To Basket

Zebras, giraffes, hippos, elephants and lions are sung about in this song. Children can sit in a circle round a piece of blue cloth (the water hole). Each child has an animal which pretends to take a drink when it is sung about. But when it is the elephant’s turn, he has a water pistol to squirt everyone!
