If You're Happy and You Know It...

If you need a fun and engaging activity to do with the whole group of children in your care, try this suggestion from one of our students!


I love to do ‘If You’re Happy and You Know It.’  This works great inside and outdoors.  Keep in mind though that the different activities you do with the song might be different if indoors.  I normally do this with the 1 year olds, but you could do it with the older kids as well.  Simply give them an instruction like ‘If you’re happy and you know it touch your head.’  If you’re outdoors change it to something more physical like ‘If you’re happy and you know it, run.’

If  you try this activity with the children in your care, share your experience in the "comments" section!
