Sing a Song

I had a little red balloon

I had a little red balloon
(Pretend to hold a balloon in between your two hands.)
And I blew, and I blew, and I blew.
(Pretend to blow up the balloon.)
And it grew, and it grew, and it grew.
(Spread your two hands further and further apart.)
I tossed it up in the air,
(Pretend to toss the balloon up with your two hands.)
And didn’t let it drop. I bounced it on the ground,
(Pretend to bounce the balloon on the ground with your two hands.)
And it went “Pop!”
(Clap your two hands together as you shout the word “Pop!”)
