Dinosaur Hunt
Going on a dinosaur hunt. (slap thighs)
And I'm not afraid. (point to self)
There's a tall mountain. (look with hand over eyes)
Can't go under it. (move hand down)
Can't go around it. (move hand around)
Guess I'll go over it. (reach hands as if climbing)
There's a river. (hands over eyes)
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it
Guess I'll swim across it. (move arms as if swimming)
There's some tall grass.
Can't go over it
Can't go around it
Guess I'll go through it (slap hands up and down in front)
There's a cave!
Can't go over it
Can't go under it.
Guess I'll go in it
It's dark and spooky in here (shake)
It's cold in here! (wrap arms around self and shiver)
I feel some scales (pretend to rub something)
I feel some big teeth! (pretend to touch something)
OH! It's a Dinosaur! (scream)
Run out of the cave (slap thighs)
Go through the grass
Swim across the river
Climb the mountain
Run home (slap thighs)
Open the door
Jump into bed (cover head with arms as if hiding under a blanket)
I went on a dinosaur hunt
And I wasn't afraid!


I'm a Mean Old Dinosaur
(Tune: I'm a little Tea Pot)
I'm a mean old Dinosaur
(Make a mean face, the kids make the cutest mean faces)
Big and Tall
(Gesture hands big and tall )
Here is my tail, here is my claw.
(Gesture hands behind your back for tail and make claw hands)
When I get all hungry
(rub your tummy)
I just growl
(have the kids exaggerate the grrroooowwwlll)
Look out kids I'm on the prowl.
(Here I tickle each one of the tummy and they all giggle)
