Sleepy Storytime

Storytime for 1 to 3 year olds: 
  • Opening - Skinnamarink (from Car Songs: Songs to Sing Anywhere by Dennis Buck at Kimbo) and Sticky Sticky Bubblegum
  • Book #1 – The Napping House by Audrey Wood, illustrated by Don Wood
  • Stand-up Activity - During the Night (action chant written by Carol Hopkins)
During the night I know that...
Stars twinkle in the sky
Bats fly and swoop through the air
Owls flap their wings before saying, "Who-Who"
Cats jump from place to place
Opossums climb up trees
Raccoons run across the grass
Wolves howl at the moon
And I lie in my bed to sleep
  • Bridge - Open Shut Them (fingerplay)
Open, shut them
(open and close hands)
Open, shut them
Give a little clap (clap)
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Put them in your lap
(put hands in lap)

Creep them, creep them
Under your chin
(creep fingers up chest)
Open your mouth, but don't put them in
(do as words say)

Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Give a little clap
Open shut them
Open shut them
Put them in your lap 

  • Closing - Use scarves to the song "Milkshake" from Songs for Wiggleworms by Old Town School of Folk Music
  • Craft – Glue together a moon bed (a cut out moon crescent, a square of cloth, and a square of card stock)
