Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

My pianist pointed out today that at the end of this song in the songbook, there is a suggestion on how to sing it. I don't know how i've missed that but it says, "...sing slowly and move parts of the body as they are mentioned. For example, nod head, shrug shoulders, bend knees, stand tiptoe, and so forth." So, instead of pointing to our body parts, we sang it this way today and the kids really loved it-especially because i messed up a few times-it takes concentration! I love my pianist, she points out many useful things and has great ideas!


  1. This is awesome! I had no clue, I am totally using this today! Thanks for posting!

  2. I tried this, and the kids loved it! It was a blast trying to wiggle noses and ears! It was nice to have the quiet for a second too, and oddly enough, it kept the kids at a reverent quiet for a bit. Thanks!!
