Make A Circle Lyrics and Actions
♫ Time to make a circle. [Everyone rushes to the center of the room and holds hands in a circle.]
Make a circle, big big big. [Make the circle bigger.]
Small small small. [Make the circle smaller.]
Big big big. [Make the circle bigger.]
Make a circle, small small small. [Make the circle smaller.]
Hello hello hello. [Everybody waves to each other. Try to make eye contact with each child.]
Make a circle, round and round. [Holding hands, walk around in a big circle.]
Round and round.
Round and round. [If you like, move the circle in the other direction.]
Make a circle, round and round.
Hello hello hello.
Make a circle, up up up. [While holding hands, everyone reaches up high!]
Down down down. [Crouch down low.]
Up up up. [Reach high!]
Make a circle, down down down. [Crouch low.]
Now sit down. [Everyone sits down.] ♫
