Under the Big Top

Get over your winter blues with a circus at home!  Pretend to juggle with cotton balls.  Place a long piece of masking tape on the floor and practice walking it like a tight rope walker.  Pretend to be a lion and lion tamer.  Do somersaults and other amazing acrobatic feats.  Do the action rhyme listed below, then pop some popcorn and enjoy some great circus books!

 

Funny Clown, Funny Clown (Tune: Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear)
Funny clown, funny clown,
spin around.
Funny clown, funny clown,
jump up and down.
Funny clown, funny clown,
shake your hips.
Funny clown, funny clown,
wiggle your lips.
Funny clown, funny clown,
touch your toes.
Funny clown, funny clown,
honk your nose.
