Sunny Day by Elizabeth Mitchell

This is my go-to song for closing storytimes, outreach visits, etc. I put together actions (and changed a few words) to make it a perfect calming-down song.

Start by crouching down and holding out your hands - this is always good for developing balance!
The sun comes up (Stand up slowly)
The flowers bloom (Hold out fists and slowly open them)
The rain comes down (Flutter your fingers like rain and slowly bend or crouch all the way down)
The flowers grow (Stand up again and raise your hands in the air)
People dancing everywhere (Turn in a circle)
The sun goes down again (Sink back down - if you're starting storytime with this, you end up sitting and calm)
