Song

“Hugs and Kisses” (from SPL children)
(Tune: “Frère Jacques”)
Hugs and kisses, hugs and kisses
Just for you, just for you!
Just to tell you, Mother, just to tell you, Mother,
I love you, I love you!

Rhyme

“Mommy” (from The Holiday Zone)
Mommy sweeps and washes dishes, (pretend to sweep and wash dishes)
Packs my lunch and blows me kisses, (blow kisses)
Cooks our food, cleans our clothes, (pretend to stir)
Wipes the baby’s runny nose, (point to nose)
Dries our tears when we cry, (wipe eyes)
Hugs us when she says good-bye. (hug self)
