We do enjoy some candy around here, so here are some chants to do with your baby or toddler while singing/chanting candy words - which are always more fun to sing about, me-thinks.
Lick, lick a lollipop.
Red, green, blue,
pink and yellow too.
sweet are you!
Bubblegun - POP!
Bubblegum - chew.
and bubblegum blue.
For Lollipop, tickle baby on last "you!"
For Bubblegun, bounce baby high on Pop!
Handy pandy, sugar candy
One, two, three!
Top one, bottom one,Where can it be?
Who Stole the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?
(This one has been around for years and works best with preschoolers)
First, choose a child to be the cookie thief. We'll use.... Susie and Danny. :-)
-Susie stole the cookie from the cookie jar.
Susie: Who me?
Susie: Couldn't be!
Danny stole the cookie from the cookie jar...
Motions: This one is best either in a group of children (circle) or while riding in the car when there are others around to "accuse" etc...
You can clap the beat to this one too as you're chanting the first line.
Point to the accused and then open hands when asking "Then who?" etc.... (not if you're driving, please....).
