MYSTERY BOX

Mystery Box

This week’s object was a bar of ivory soap.  My awesome coworker informed me that it’s special because it’s the only brand of soap that floats in the tub!

Our clues were:
#1)  It floats
#2)  You can use it in the tub and shower
#3)  It makes bubbles

(I have more information about our mystery box here)

SONGS, RHYMES AND FINGERPLAYS

Five Little Ducks Went Out to Play
Five little ducks went out to play (hold up 5 fingers)
Over the hill and far away (hide fingers behind back)
Mother ducks said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack” (make hand into duck bill and open and close)
But only four little ducks came back (hold up 4 fingers)
(Repeat until no ducks come back…4,3,2,1,0)
So mother duck said, “QUACK, QUACK, QUACK, QUACK”
And all her five little ducks came back.

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the ground
Teddy bear, teddy bear, reach up high
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the sky
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch your knees
Teddy bear, teddy bear, sit down please.

Diddle, Diddle
Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped
over the moon;
The little dog laughed
to see such sport,
And the dish ran
away with the spoon.

All through Bath Time
(Tune: Wheels on the Bus)
The bubbles in the tub go
Pop, pop, pop! Pop, pop, pop! Pop, pop, pop!
The bubbles in the tub go pop, pop, pop!
All through bath time!

Repeat with:
The washcloth in the tub goes scrub, scrub, scrub…
The ducky in the tub goes splash, splash, splash…
Credit: I honestly can’t remember where I found this rhyme, sorry!

Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes
(I transitioned into this song by telling the kids it’s important we wash our whole body when we take a bath, including our head, shoulders, knees, and toes!)

Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes,
Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes
Eyes and ears, and mouth and nose,
Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.

Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mamma called the doctor and the doctor said:
“No more monkey’s jumping on the bed”!
(Count down until there are no monkeys left)

Tiny Tim
I had a little turtle
His name was Tiny Tim
I put him in the bathtub
To see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water
He ate up all the soap
And when he woke next morning
He had bubbles in his throat!

Bubble, bubble, bubble…bubble, bubble, POP!
Bubble, bubble, bubble…bubble, bubble, POP!

This is the Way We Wash
(Tune: Mulberry Bush)
This is the way we wash our _____,
Wash our _____, wash our _____
This is the way we wash our _____,
So early in the morning.
