Songs
I'm an Astronaut
Tune: "Jimmy Crack Corn"
I'm an astronaut flying in space.
Going in my rocket ship to someplace.
Maybe landing on Plutooooooooo
I'm just ready to GO!
I'm a Little Rocket
Tune: "I'm a Little Teapot"
I'm a little rocket pointing at the moon.
Now I'm getting fueled up
(bounce baby quickly )
We'll be ready soon.
When it's time to board me, then I'll say
Blast off! Zoom!
We're on our way.
(Lift up baby )
Ten astronauts in a rocket ship
(Hold up fingers and touch both hands together at fingertips to make point of rocket )
Flying through space gonna make a little trip
(Keep point of rocket with hands and go back and forth )
Going past Mars and Jupiter, too!
Ten little astronauts, what a crew!
(Hold up 10 fingers )
Bend and stretch,
reach for the stars.
(lift baby from low)
There goes Jupiter,
here comes Mars.
(hold baby in air and “fly” side to side)
Bend and stretch,
reach for the sky
(lift baby from low)
Stand on tip-e-toe,
oh! so high!
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
Other
Parachute play or toys
