Way Up in the Sky

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 15 minutes

Your child will enjoy this cute action rhyme. It is more fun when you exaggerate the voices and use a high pitch when the birds are talking.

  1. Teach your child the following rhyme and the corresponding movements:
Way up in the sky
(raise arms in the air)
The little birds fly.
(flap arms)
While down in their nest,
The little birds rest.
(curl up arms like holding a baby)
With a wing on the left
(extend left arm)
And a wing on the right
(extend right arm)
The sweet little birdies sleep all through the night.
(press hands together on cheek)

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
(put finger to lips)
They're sleeping!

The bright sun comes up,
(raise arms in the air)
The dew falls away.
(pat in a downward motion)
"Good morning, good morning"
(wave and flap)
The little birds say!
