It's Birthday Party Time

Song: It's Birthday Party Time (Tune: The Farmer in the Dell) It’s birthday party time It’s birthday party time Hi ho the derry-o It’s birthday party time
It’s time to blow out the candles It’s time to blow out the candles Hi hi the derry-o It’s time to blow out the candles
It’s time to eat the cake It’s time to eat the cake Hi ho the derry-o It’s time to eat the cake
It’s time to open presents It’s time to open presents Hi ho the derry-o It’s time to open presents

Looking for another idea for this same prop? I posted a different song last week
I do want to acknowledge that not all people celebrate birthdays so that is something to be aware of and sensitive to as you plan programs in a public library but I did want to share an option since many of my blog readers come from a variety of settings where they work with children and it can be difficult to find a variety of materials on birthday activities. 

Happy Birthday, Everyone!

A coworker and I wrote the following song to accompany this dog toy/slice of birthday cake.  
Happy Birthday Everyone Tune: London Bridge is Falling Down
Happy birthday, everyone, Everyone, everyone, everyone Happy birthday, everyone Let’s sing this song!
Everyone, let’s make a wish (Close your eyes) Make a wish, Make a wish, Everyone, let’s make a wish! Blow that candle out! (BLOW) Blow out the candle
Everyone, let’s eat some cake, (pretend to eat cake) Eat some cake, Eat some cake, Eat some birthday cake! YUM! Yum, yum, yum yum.
