Exploring Through Movement

Where we Meet

The next class date and location will be indicated in the invite on the My Baby Jungle Facebook group page.

Activity Description

Join us for a lively half hour activity where little ones explore movement. We will move to some familiar songs, some new songs, and maybe even some Nursery Rhymes.  We will also get to move our bodies in yoga-like poses too.  This activity will be lead by Andrea and Jess.

Afterwards we will have open play time so bring some toys along that can be shared.
This class is for Jungle Explorers who are able walkers.

Song lyrics:

Hop Along Yogi

(Bounce legs slow, medium and fast for each verse)

Hop along yogi

Hop along yogi

Hop along yogi

Real, real slow!

 

Hop along yogi,  hop along yogi,  hop along yogi

Real, real fast!

Hop along yogi,  hop along yogi,  hop along yogi

Here we go!

 

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes

knees and toes

(repeat)

And eyes and ears and mouth and nose

Head, shoulders, knees and toes

knees and toes

 

Feet, tummies, arms and chins

arms and chins

(repeat)

And eyes and ears and mouth and shins

Feet, tummies, arms and chins

arms and chins

 

Hands, fingers, legs and lips

legs and lips

(repeat)

And eyes and ears and mouth and hips

Hands, fingers, legs and lips

legs and lips

Ring Around The Rosy

Ring around the rosy,

Pocket full of posies,

Ashes, ashes, we all fall down.

(repeat)

Feel the lovely sunshine

Flowers all around

Hop a little hop right off the ground

(repeat)

REPEAT song

 

Airplane Song

Get in your airplane and off we go.

Going to the park is next you know.

Now slow it down and land on the ground

 

And when we get up we’re gonna jump all around

 

Get back in your airplane….California…..spin all around

New York…..gallop

Playground…..dance

Get back in your airplane it’s time to go home. Your family and friends are waiting you know. Now slow it down and land on the ground and come sit down in your own hometown

My Dog Rags

I have a dog and his name is Rags

He eats so much that his belly sags

His ears flip-flop and his tail wig-wags

And when he walks he goes zig-zag

He goes: flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag

He goes: flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag

He goes: flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag

I love Rags and he loves me

Hokey Pokey (Dora the Explorer Version)
You put your right foot in

You take your right foot out

You put your right foot in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

You put your left foot in

You take your left foot out

You put your left foot in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

You put your right hand in

You take your right hand out

You put your right hand in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

You put your left hand in

You take your left hand out

You put your left hand in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

You put your right side in

You put your right side out

You put your right side in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

You put your left side in

You put your left side out

You put your left side in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

Clap down low

Clap up high

Clap down low

Clap up high

You put your nose in

You put your nose out

You put your nose in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

You put your back side in

You put your back side out

You put your back side in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

Clap down low

Clap up high

Clap down low

Clap up high

You put your head in

You put your head out

You put your head in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

You put your whole self in

You take your whole self out

You put your whole self in

And you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey

And you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about
