Egg Shaker Songs

“Can You Shake Your Egg With Me?” (from Hartford County Public Library)
(Tune: “London Bridge is Falling Down”)
Can you shake your egg with me?
Shake your egg along with me
It’s as easy as can be
Now put it on your tummy! (head, knee, ear, etc…)

“Cinnamon Bear” (from Preschool Education)
Cinnamon, cinnamon, cinnamon bear
Sitting on the kitchen chair
Cinnamon sugar in the shaker
Shake it, shake it, shake it like a baker
Sprinkle it on buttered toast
It’s a treat you’ll love the most
Cinnamon, cinnamon, cinnamon bear
Do you think that we may share?

Activity

Fork Bears (from Crafty Morning) – I cut white construction paper in half and drew a circle on each piece so the children would have a guide for the bear’s face when painting in the fuzz. Once they were finished, they glued on ears and a nose, and used a paintbrush to add eyes.
