Parent Tot – Song – If you’re happy and you know it

Can do this with child sitting on the side, or with the child in the parent’s arms.

Lyrics:

If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands
If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands
If you’re happy and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands

If you’re happy and you know it, splash your feet
If you’re happy and you know it, splash your feet
If you’re happy and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, splash your feet

If you’re happy and you know it, Kiss the water
If you’re happy and you know it, Kiss the water
If you’re happy and you know it
If you’re happy and you know it
If you’re happy and you know it, Kiss the water
If you’re happy and you know it, Kiss the water

– Itsy Bitsy Spider song with a bucket on the side of the pool.

Song: Five Little Monkeys

Hold child in the saddle position (resting on hip).
Move up and down in the water up to their level of comfort as the lyrics say.

Jumping, move up and down.
“hit her head” go underwater to the chin, nose, or whole head

“Five Little Monkeys” Lyrics

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed,
One fell down and bumped his head,
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

Four little monkeys jumping on the bed,
One fell down and bumped his head,
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

Three little monkeys jumping on the bed,
One fell down and bumped her head,
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

Two little monkeys jumping on the bed,
One fell down and bumped his head,
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

One little monkey jumping on the bed,
She fell down and bumped her head,
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
Put those monkeys back to bed!

Row Row Row your Boat

“Child in the water held by parent in BACK GLIDE position. Parent holding child in BACK GLIDE position.

Sing: “”Row, row, row your boat, Gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Life is but a dream.””

On the “”row, row”” part, take child’s hands and do a back stroke with them, emphasizing pushing the water.

Walk backwards throughout and sway back and forth in a zig,zag motion during the “”merrily, merrily”” part.”

Hokey Pokey Song
