Bats are sleeping

Children will develop their language skills and improve their gross motor skills.



Have children pretend to be bats sleeping while you sing the song. At the end of the song the "bats" wake up and fly around until you start the song again.

Bats Are Sleeping
(Tune: Frere Jacques)

Bats are sleeping,
Bats are sleeping,
Upside down,
Upside down.
Sleeping in the morning sun.
Waiting for the night to come.
Then they'll fly all around.
Then they'll fly all around.

Baby Bat

The baby bat
Screamed out in fright,
"Turn on the dark,
I'm afraid of the light.".
