Pirate Story Time (Toddlers)

Song: Open Shut Them
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap.
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap, lap, lap.
Creep them, crawl them
Creep them, crawl them
Right up to your chin, chin, chin.
Open up your mouth …
But do not let them in!

Song: Clap Clap Clap Your Hands (to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat)
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them now with me.
Clap your hands, let me see
Clap them now with me.

Tap, tap, tap your knees // Shake, shake, shake your feet

Flannel: Five Pirates for a Treasure Chest
Five pirates on a treasure chest, one jumped off and four are left.
Four pirates on a treasure chest, one slide off and three are left.
Three pirates on a treasure chest, one fell down and two are left.
Two pirates on a treasure chest, one was pushed off and one is left.
One pirate on a treasure chest, he climbed down and none are left.
No pirates at the treasure chest, yo-ho-ho and now it’s all mine!

Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
Sung three times, getting faster each time.

Song: Row Row Row Your Boat
I do three verses of this classic:
Row row row your boat (the traditional way) //
Rock rock rock your boat, sway from side to side
Merrily merrily merrily merrily what a bumpy ride (bump hands on lap) //
Row row row your boat, gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile (crocodile snap with arms)
Don’t forget to scream (*AH*)

Action Rhyme: The One-Eyed Pirate
The one-eyed pirate, (cover one eye)
He’s fierce and he’s tough. (clench fist and scowl)
He digs for buried treasure, (digging motion)
But it’s never enough. (shake head)
He lives on a ship (hold up hand flat, thumb out)
Way out on the sea. (rock hand in curvy motion, other hand under it)
His parrot is his only friend, (perch hand on shoulder)
Except, of course, for me. (point to self)

Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider

Teeny Weeny Spider (sung in falsetto)
Great Big Hairy Spider (sung deeply)

Song: If You’re a Pirate and You Know It
If you’re a pirate and you know it swab the deck (swish, swish)
If you’re a pirate and you know it swab the deck (swish, swish)
If you’re a pirate and you know it, then you’ll hear sea winds a’blowin’
If you’re a pirate and you know it, swab the deck (swish, swish)

Walk the plank (stomp, stomp) // Say ahoy! (*ahoy*)
