“Stuffed Animal Sleepover” preschool pajama storytime

stuffed-animal

The kids brought their stuffed animals into the library for a pajama storytime. Then the stuffed animals stayed the night with me in the library.

Everybody Have a Seat
Everybody have a seat,
Have a seat, have a seat.
Everybody come and have a seat on the floor.
Not on the ceiling, not on the door.
Everybody come and have a seat on the floor.

Book – Bedtime at the Nut House by Eric Litwin

Tommy Thumbs Up
Tommy Thumbs up (thumbs up)
and Tommy Thumbs down. (thumbs down)
Tommy Thumbs dancing all over town.  (Dance thumbs)
Dance ‘em on your shoulders.
(Bounce them on shoulders)
Dance ‘em on your head.
(Bounce them on head)
Dance ‘em on your knees.
(Bounce them on knees)
And tuck them into bed! (Fold arms, hiding hands)

Ten in the Bed
There were ten in the bed
and the little one said
“Roll over, roll over.”
So they all rolled over and one fell out,
There were nine in the bed and the little one said…
Continue until there is only the little one is left:
Then “I’ve got the whole bed to myself” to the tune of “He’s Got the Whole World in hid Hands”

Book – Dinosaur vs Bedtime by Bob Shea

Sleeping Bunnies
See the little bunnies sleeping
‘Til it’s nearly noon?
Shall we wake them with a merry tune?
Oh so still. Are they ill?
Wake up, little bunnies!
Hop, little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop, little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop, little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop, little bunnies, ‘til I say stop

Bunnies Bedtime
“My bunnies now must go to bed,”
The little mother rabbit said.
“But I will count them first to see
If they have all come back to me.
One bunny, two bunnies, three bunnies dear,
Four bunnies, five bunnies,
Yes, you’re all here.
You are the prettiest things alive,
My bunnies, one, two, three, four, five.”

Good-bye
Everybody wave high, wave low.
I think it’s time we gotta go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes,
Wave your tongue and wave your nose.
Wave your knees, and wave your lips
Blow a kiss with fingertips.
Wave your ears, and wave your hair
Wave your belly and your derriere.
Wave your chin, and wave your eyes
Wave your hand and say goodbye.

Early literacy tip: Bedtime is a great time to share a book with your child, but don’t let it be the only time you share books! Take time throughout the day – in a waiting room, before lunch, after dinner – to share stories together. Show your child that reading is enjoyable at any time of day.

We then had milk and cookies while the families filled out the stuffed-animal-sleepover-permission slip for their stuffed animals. The kids then left, and the animals and I partied it up.
