If You’re Happy and You Know It…

One of my two year old’s favorite activities is to sing “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”  We try to make it last as long as possible and to come up with as many silly options as we can.  If you’d like to sing along, these are some of our favorite verses.

First, for some standard verses:

Clap your hands
Stomp your feet
Show a smile
Reach up high
Touch the ground
Shout hooray!
Spin around
Jump up and down (especially fun after spinning!)

And some of our made-up activities:

Do a windmill
Roar like a lion
Make a monkey face
Walk like a penguin
Do a somersault
Give me a kiss
Tickle your sister
Pretend to sleep (this causes fits of laughter!)

If only I could sing “if you’re happy and you know it, take a nap” and it would do the trick!
