POPCORN SONG

Hey! It’s the Popcorn Song!
Lying on the ground, pretend you’re a
popcorn kernel.
Here’s How!
Bend your knees (and using your hands)
Pull them in
Lift your head
Tuck in your chin
Look at your knees
Now, squeeze together tightly, into a
little ball
Get ready to explode…
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Explode in the air!

Now, bring legs and arms down flat on
the floor
Bring in your knees
Pull them in
Hold them tight
Tuck in your chin
Look at your knees
And squeeze together tightly, into a little
ball
Get ready to explode…
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Explode in the air!

Bring legs and arms down flat on the
floor
And one last time
Pull in your knees
Up to your chest
Tuck in your chin
Let’s do our best
Now, gently rock
Just like a popcorn kernel, you’re sizzling
in the pot
Get ready to explode
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Explode in the air!
Quickly pull knees in
Explode in the air!
Pull them in
Explode in the air!
Pull them in
(And one last time)
Explode in the air!

Now, let’s try something different
Let’s calm our bodies
Pretend you’re tired (Cross your legs)
Rest on the floor (Cross your hands)
Let’s all relax
We’re calm once more
Take one deep breath (And hold it in)
Now, slowly let it out
Hey, we’re feeling safe and warm!
Just waiting for the next time we’re
popcorn

Wow! Yeah! You were really great!
