Sweetheart Dance - sung to "Skip to my Lou"

Cut large heart shapes out of red, yellow & blue construction paper. Give each child one heart and have the children stand in a circle. Then sing the song below & have the children follow the directions. Change the activity/add more verses. Have fun!

Red hearts, red hearts, take a bow
Yellow hearts, yellow hearts, take a bow
Blue hearts, blue hearts, take a bow
Now all hearts jump up right now.

Yellow hearts, yellow hearts touch the ground
Blue hearts, blue hearts touch the ground
Red hearts, red hearts touch the ground
Now all hearts turn round and round.

Blue hearts, blue hearts, sit right down
Red hearts, red hearts, sit right down
Yellow hearts, yellow hearts sit right down
Now all stand and run to town! (run in place)
