Smile
source

It isn’t any trouble just to S-M-I-L-E
It isn’t any trouble just to S-M-I-L-E
So smile when you’re in trouble,
it will vanish like a bubble,
if you only take the trouble just to S-M-I-L-E

It isn’t any trouble just to L-A-U-G-H
It isn’t any trouble just to L-A-U-G-H
So laugh when you’re in trouble,
it will vanish like a bubble,
if you only take the trouble just to L-A-U-G-H

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
He he he he he he he he
Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho
Haha, Hehe, Ho

We also sang The Ants Go Marching along with a CD the library had, and had wrist streamers

And in her band she had [kids name] with the [instrument]
e-i-e-i-o
With a shake shake here
And a shake shake there
Here a shake, there a shake
Everywhere a shake shake
Miss Meg had band,
e-i-e-i-o

Closing Song

Tickle the Clouds

Tickle the clouds
Tickle your toes
Turn around
Tickle your nose
Reach down low
Reach up high
The stories are over,
Wave bye-bye

Craft

Paper Plate Shaker

I pre-made the shakers leaving one hole big enough for beans or bells. I added three streamers to each one. For older kids you could leave the construction of the shakers to the kids and let them pick their own streamers.

Materials:

Paper plates (small size)
Stapler
Streamers
Sticker/markers/glitter (whatever you want to have available for decoration!)
Beans or bells for the inside. The smaller the bean the more likely it will be able to fit through the cracks
