Terrific Twos Storytime- April Fools!

I have never been more grateful for a group of caregivers than I was this week. This group of adults is always so involved and loves participating, but this week in particular I think would have fallen a little flat if I didn’t have so many adults willing to sing and dance silly songs with me. So if anybody from my Wednesday 2 year old group is reading this- thank you!

If You’re Ready For a Story

If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)

If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)

If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story

If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)

If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)

If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)

If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story

If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)

If you’re ready for a story wave hello

If you’re ready for a story wave hello

If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story

If you’re ready for a story wave hello

This Is Big Big Big

This is big big big, this is small small small

This is short short short, this is tall tall tall

This is fast fast fast, this is slow slow slow

This is yes yes yes, this is no no no

ABCs

 

Open/Shut Them

Open shut them, open shut them

Give a little clap clap clap

Open shut them, open shut them

Put them in your lap lap lap

Creep them crawl them, creep them crawl them

Right up to your chinny chin chin

Open wide your little mouth—but do not let them in!

Peanut Butter Dance

First you spread the peanut butter, then you spread the jam

You put a slice of bread on top and eat up all you can

Then you take your sticky fingers and you wipe them on your pants

And do a little wiggle for a peanut butter dance!

*Huge hit with 2 year olds. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a silly toddler book- it was perfect for toddler humor.
