Action Rhyme: “Time For Bed”
Time for bed, time for bed (tap watch on wrist)
Fluff up the pillow (pretend to fluff pillow)
Lay down your head (lay head on hands)
Pull up the blanket (sign “blanket”)
Tuck it in tight (hold hands under chin)
Close your eyes (close eyes and tilt head)
And sleep all night (snore)

Rhyme with Scarves: “I Once Had a Blanket”
I once had a blanket, it was fluffy and new
I once had a blanket, and its color was blue!
I once had a blanket, the prettiest I’ve ever seen
I once had a blanket, and its color was green!
I once had a blanket, soft as a pillow
I once had a blanket, and its color was yellow!
I once had a blanket, at the foot of my bed
I once had a blanket, and its color was red!

Craft

I recycled my craft from “Letter Q” storytime since it went so well with the kids.

How It Went

I am still so in love with this storytime theme. It was absolutely wonderful and just worked so well with my group. I honestly did not have any misses in any of the books or extension activities. The kids were thrilled when I pulled out the scarves from behind the flannelboard. It was another example of storytime magic!
