Song - Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle Twinkle is often the first song I sing with a new group of kids because everyone knows it and is so easy to sing.

It is such a good "use your imaginations" song... "Now, close your eyes as we sing the song." "Did you see many starts?" "Did you see any shooting stars?"

It also introduces hand motions for the kids as they reach their hands high into the air and make twinkling stars with their hands.

From twinkle I move into the ABC song (same tune) and maybe Baa Baa Black Sheep (though I am not very wilded about the words).

This is a great song for creating some custom lyrics. I have a song about "Bubble Bubble little Cheese" that is interactive. I wrote this verse for a cheese day at our youth group were all the activies were related to cheese.

I also like the sense of "wonder" this song invokes. The wonder of stars and night and how big our world is can lead to other art projects about the planets and stars.

Twinkle, Twinkle

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

(2 more verses)
When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Then the traveler in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark;
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

ABC Song & Bubble, Bubble
(To the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle)

Bubble, Bubble little cheese
May I eat you, if you please?
I like gouda, I like chedder
But that goat cheese, I like Bedder
Bubble, Bubble little cheese
May I eat you, if you please?

Bubble, Bubble…
I hear there’s cheese up on the moon.
Gee I hope we get there soon.
Bubble, Bubble…

Bubble, Bubble…
(child’s name) at a huge pinecone
Thought it taste like provolone
Bubble, Bubble…
