     Beanbags are favorite props for children, and if you havenít used them
   before, youíre in for some fun!

The directions for this song are pretty self-explanatory. Talk through the motions before playing it so children will be ready to fully participate. If you donít already have beanbags, you can easily make them or purchase them from any teaching supply store, as well as many toy and novelty stores.
Two of my favorite online stores are Oriental Trading  and Discount School Supply
Consider buying or making either different solid colored beanbags or ones with a single letter on each. That way you can incorporate them into more learning activities.

Beanbag Song

1.  Put your beanbag under your chin
Thatís the way this song begins
Put your beanbag down on the ground
and take a little walk around it now.
Jump over it once, ready, set, go
Jump over it again, pick your beanbag up and
Toss it hand to hand for this is not the end my friend.

2.  Put your beanbag on you head
Now put it down on your knees instead
Put your beanbag down on the ground
and take a little walk around it now.
Jump over it once, ready, set, go
Jump over it again, pick your beanbag up and
Toss it hand to hand for this is not the end my friend

Toss your beanbag up in the air and catch it if you can
Beanbags up and beanbags down,
And beanbags sometimes on the ground.

3.  Put your beanbag on you head
Now put it down on your knees instead
Put your beanbag down on the ground
And take a little walk around it now.
Jump over it once, ready, set, go
Jump over it again, pick your beanbag up and
Toss your beanbag in the air for this is the end my friend!
