This isn’t really musical but I thought it was so cute…you could pass it along to your Nursery Leaders for them to do at other times in nursery:
 
 
With children sitting on their chairs you tell them:
 
  • It’s a beautiful day so let’s go on a lion hunt [tap hands on top of knees – representing walking].
 
  • Oh, look, there’s some tall grass – let’s go through it [arms are moving like pushing tall grass to the sides in order to go through it]. 
 
  • [continue walking] 
 
  • There’s a fence [point with one hand while shading eyes with the other]!

 

  • Let’s climb over it [pretend to climb and jump over a fence with arms and hands].
 
  • [continue walking]
 
  • I’m so hot – [wipe brow]
 
  •  Oh, look, there’s a lake.  [point with one hand while shading eyes with the other]!
 
  • Let’s swim to the other side [swim with arms].
 
  • Wasn’t that great?  [extend arms out like you are asking a question]
 
  • I feel cooler now. [continue walking]
 
  • Look!  There’s a tree!  [point with one hand while shading eyes with the other]!
 
  • Let’s go climb it [pretend to climb a tree]
 
  • [look around] Oh look! 
 
  • There’s a mountain over there [point with one hand while shading eyes with the other]!
 
  • I see a cave up there.  Let’s go see what is in the cave [continue walking and then pretend to be hiking up the mountain using your arms and hands].  
 
  • Whew, here’s the cave [start to speak in hushed tones or quietly].
 
  • Let’s go inside and see what’s in here.  Oh, it’s dark in here!  [put thumbs and index fingers in a circle and place around the eyes].
 
  • Oh, I see 2 eyes! Oh, I see 4 eyes [move the circled fingers to forehead as if removing the binoculars] 
 
  • LET’S GET OUF OT HERE!  [tap hands on top of knees quickly – representing running!].
 
  • Let’s hike down the mountain [climb down the mountain]
 
  • [continue running] Climb down the tree.
 
  • [continue running] Swim across the lake [swim with arms]
 
  • [continue running] Jump over the fence [climb and jump over fence] 
 
  • [continue running] Go through the tall grass [arms are moving like pushing tall grass to the sides in order to go through it].
 
  • [Slow hands down to a stop]. Oh, we made it home safely – are we all here?  [count off or name each child].
 
  • Yep!  Thank goodness we all made it back.  Wasn’t that fun!!
