Summer Songs


Sometimes when we go out on the playground there are bees flying.
So I came up with a perfect song that the children can sing when they see the bees.

Bumble bee Bumble bee can you see
You can’t have no part of me
You sting so hard and you make me cry.
I just want to say goodbye. The love this song.


It Is Summer

(sung to “If You’re Happy And You Know It”)
It is summer
and it’s time to take a swim!
It is summer
and it’s time to take a swim!
It is summer
that’s the season!
We don’t need
a better reason!
It is summer
and it’s time to take a swim!


Summer bugs…(sang to “do you know the Muffin Man” tune)Do you know a Butterfly, a butterfly, a butterfly. Do you know a Butterfly who loves a summers day!

Yes we know a Butterfly, a butterfly, a butterfly. yes we know a Butterfly who loves a summers day!

Continue changing butter fly to other summer bugs…

caterpillar, house fly, dragonfly, lady bug, spider, moth, glow bug etc…


Summer Song (Sung to the tune of “Are You Sleeping?”)

I see sea shells by the sea shore.
Sky so blue, Starfish too,
All the boys and girls play
On a hot and sunny day.
Summer’s here. Summer’s here.


Swimming swimming in the swimming pool
When days are hot when days are cool
In the swimming pool
Back stroke, side stroke
Fancy diving too
Oh don’t you wish that you could have nothing else to do but
(repeat)


5 little hotdogs in the fry pan, (hold up 5 fingers and wiggle them)
The grease got hot and one went BAM! (clap hands loudly)
4 little hotdogs in the fry pan, (hold up 4 finger and wiggle them)
The grease got hot and one went BAM! (clap hands loudly)
3 little hotdogs in the fry pan, (hold up 3 fingers and wiggle them)
The grease got hot and one went BAM! (clap hands loudly)
2 little hotdogs in the fry pan, (hold up 2 fingers and wiggle them)
The grease got hot and one went BAM! (clap hands loudly)
1 little hotdog in the fry pan, (hold up 1 finger and wiggle it)
The grease got hot and it went BAM! (clap hands loudly)
No little hotdogs in the fry pan, (hold up a fist and shake it) the pan got hot and it went BAM! (clap hands loudly)


Summer Sun Fingerplay

The summer sun in the sky
Shining, shining up so high
Makes it warm for outside fun
To play at the park and run
To swim hike and fish
And go on a picnic, if you wish!
