Song – Pretty Little Ester went to town bought a hamentashen nice and brown, she took a little bite and then she cried “Goody, Goody, Goody, there is something inside”
Sung to “I’m a little teapot”
to the tune of Heveynu Shalom Aleichem:
Let’s all dress up ’cause it’s Purim,
let’s all dress up ’cause it’s Purim,
let’s all dress up because it’s Purim
We’ll stamp out Haman, Haman, ’til his name is gone (have the children stamp their feet at this part)
2. Let’s clap our hands ’cause it’s Purim…
3. Let’s pat our rosh (head) ’cause it’s Purim…
4. Let’s march around …
A cute song for Purim…
Purim day, Purim day. What a happy holiday.
Wear a mask, wear a crown. Dancing all around.
Round go the groggers, rash, rash, rash! (3x)
On Purim day!
(This is the English version to a Hebrew song called Chag Purim)
My hat it has three corners, three corners has my hat and had it not three corners it would not be my hat. Use hand motions. My–point to yourself, Hat-touch head, three–put up three fingers, corners–touch elbow. Each time you sing the song leave out a word and just use the hand motion. First leave out my, then hat, then three, then corners. Finish by singing the complete song again.
Pat a cake, pat a cake, baker man, bake me a hamentashen fast as you can. You roll it and fold it and make corners three, put it in the oven for the children and me.
