Jack-in-the-box, all shut up tight,
(Close fist with thumb tucked in; cover with flat palm of over hand.)
Not a breath of air or a ray of light,
How tired he must be, all folded up.
Let’s open the lid,
(Raise hand slightly.)
And up he’ll jump!
(Remove hand quickly and pop up other thumb.)
Celebrate the birthday of the song Happy Birthday.
Sing Happy Birthday and use family names. You can also check out from the library: Happy Birthday to You!: The Mystery Behind the Most Famous Song in the World by Margot Theis Raven and Chris Soentpiet.
