Teddy’s Tired

  • Chant the following.

Teddy's tired,
Teddy's tired,
Go to sleep,
Go to sleep,
Close your little eyes,
Close your little eyes,
Don't make a peep,
Don't make a peep.

  • As you chant, your child and his teddy bear lie down on the floor and pretend to be asleep. Sing the last two lines very softly.
  • After all is quiet for a few seconds, say in a loud voice, "Spring is here! Wake up, wake up!" Your child and his teddy bear wake up and move around the room on all fours saying,"Grrrr."
  • The surprise element of this game is very appealing to a two-year- old.
