Did you ever blow a bubble,
a bubble, a bubble?

Did you ever blow a bubble,
so sparkling and light?

Carefree Cruising

Five little bubbles cruising through the air.
Hold up five fingers. Close fist.
The first bubble said, "I haven't a care!"
Hold up index finger.
The second bubble said, "It's warm in the sun."
Hold up the middle finger. The third bubble said, "I'm having such fun!"
Hold up ring finger.
The fourth bubble said, "It's great to be free."
Hold up little finger.
The fifth bubble said, "I'm happy as can be!"
Hold up thumb.
A bird flies by. Its wings go flop.
Five bubbles -- Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!
Poke finger into air five times.

Bubbles

This is the way we blow
(pretend to blow, rounding hands as if holding up our bubbles, a bubble, spreading farther apart)
Blow, blow, blow.
This is the way we break
(Clap hands together on each oh)
our bubbles,
Oh!, Oh!, Oh!

I Had A Little Turtle

I had a little turtle
His name was Tiny Tim
I put him in the bathtub
To see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water
He ate up all the soap
Now he's stuck in bed
with a bubble in his throat.
Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Bubble, bubble, POP!!

The Bubble Song - sung to "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"

Everybody look at me. Pretty bubbles you will see.
Red and green and yellow, too, floating through the air for you.
Will they break before they land? Can you catch one in your hand?

Blowing Bubble - sung to "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles"

I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.
They fly so high
Nearly reach the sky.
But then they fall
And fade and die.
Bubbles I keep blowing
Blowing here and there.
I'm forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air.

MY BUBBLE - fingerplay

Here I have a new bubble
(make circle with thumb and pointer finger)
Help me while I blow: Small at first, then bigger
(make circle with thumbs and pointer fingers)
Watch it grow and grow.
(make circle with arms)
Do you think it is big enough?
Maybe I should stop;
For if I give another blow,
My bubble will surely POP!
(clap hands)

I Love to Blow Bubbles - fingerplay

(make heart shape by touching fingertips and thumbs)
I never will stop.

And watch them go POP!

My Bubble Floats - Sung to "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean"

My bubble floats over my shoulder
My bubble floats up to a tree
My bubble floats 'cross the blue sky
Oh come back my bubble to me.

Blowing Bubbles - Poem by Ericka Northrop

Come with me; forget your troubles.
We'll take some soap and make some bubbles!
We can make them big or small;
It isn't very hard at all.
I can't be angry, sad or blue
When blowing bubbles-now, can you?
Just blow your blues into each one.
We'll watch them sparkle in the sun.
We'll send them out into the sky.
There go your troubles!
Poof!
Bye-bye.
