Roar of a good time: Lion themed Parachute Story Time

In the Spring spirit, I decided to do a Lion themed story (You know…in like a lion, out like a lamb…) We had a  lot of fun. Here’s what we did:

Opening Song: Where is thumbkin

Opening Parachute Play: Sing row your boat with foam balls on parachute (pretend  they are boats). First we sing it and pretend it’s a nice, sunny day with calm waves, and shaking the parachute slowly. Then, we pretend a storm is coming and shake those boats like crazy!

Finger Play: Fingers like to wiggle waggle

Story: We’re Going on a Lion Hunt by Margaret Cuyler (I LOVE THIS BOOK! IT’S TOO MUCH FUN!)

Parachute Play: We used Max and Ruby Dolls to make “two little bunnies jumping on the bed” come to life.

Open, Shut Them

Story: Roar! A Noisy Counting Book by Pamela Duncan Edwards (This is great for getting the kids to ROAR! at you. I think my group had sore throats by the end)

Parachute play: I called out a color and anybody wearing that color could run under the parachute. This was excellent for practicing taking turns, following directions, learning colors, and gross motor development.

Here is the beehive finger play

Story: Silly Suzie Goose by Peter Horacek
