"Christmas is coming (come here motion with hand)
The goose is getting fat (motion a fat tummy)
Come put a penny in the old man's hat (use a winter hat and have babies put felt pennies in)
If you haven't got a penny, a half penny will do (now put felt half pennies (whole ones cut in half)
If you haven't got a half penny, then God bless you! (teacher or another baby puts hand on babies head to bless))"
Think of all the concepts learned: come here motion, silly chubby tummy motion, whole/half, social skills of giving to and blessing others. Sometimes they had to be coaxed to give up their pennies, but that was a great opportunity for talking about sharing with others.
We did one that talked about the season of autumn coming and the falling leaves. Oh, how the babies loved that! They would drop their leaves on the floor from their high chairs with many giggles in tow...
