Colorful Mittens
(Sung to the tune of “Six Little Ducks”)
Colorful mittens for me and you
Red ones, yellow ones, blue ones too.
But the one pair of mittens
that rhymes with fellow,
They’re my favorite mittens,
they’re the color yellow!

Continue with rhymes pairs for each color:
bed/red
shoe/blue
bean/green
crown/brown
sink/pink
track/black

Hat and Mittens
(to the tune of “Head and Shoulders”)
Hat and mittens, coat and boots, coat and boots,
Hat and mittens, coat and boots, coat and boots,
Scarf and snow pants, warm socks too,
Hat and mittens, coat and boots, coat and boots!

The Love Bug
It begins with a grin, (grin)
It turns to a giggle. (giggle, hee, hee, hee)
Then you start to laugh, (laugh out loud)
And your legs start to wiggle. (put your feet in the air and shake them)
You look all around for someone to hug, (look back and forth)
UH-OH! You’ve caught the love bug!
AAAAACHOOOOOO! (don’t forget to cover your sneeze!)

Brahms’s Lullaby (Lullaby and Goodnight)
Lullaby and goodnight, with roses bedight
With lilies o’er spread is baby’s wee bed
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

(Original German)
Guten Abend, gute Nacht, Mit Rosen bedacht,
Mit Naeglein besteckt, schlupf unter die Deck’
Morgen frueh, wenn Gott will,
wirst du wieder geweckt
Morgen frueh, wenn Gott will,
wirst du wieder geweckt
