Five Senses Praise
Say this before snack time.

For eyes that see
point to eyes
And hands that touch
rub hands together
Lord, I thank you very much
fold hands

For ears that hear
cup hands around ears
And a nose to smell,
wiggle nose
Lord, you've done all things well
thumbs up

And for taste buds
stick out tongue
When I eat
pretend to eat
Lord, you work is super neat.
Clap and cheer

Take turns acting out The Good Samaritan using dolls or stuffed animals, Ace bandages, and other props.

Hokey Pokey

You put left leg in
You take left leg out
You put left leg in and shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around
That's what its all about!
