I just learned this one today while searching YouTube for videos for Piper to watch. We happened upon the videos by the Mother Goose Playhouse, and this was one of many we watched today. I found it to be very cute, but short. So in my video today, are do it twice to double our fun!
It’s a chant and a “finger play” with lots of fun motions. The most fun one, though, is the very last. Check out the video and you’ll see what I mean.
Enjoy your week and I’ll see you next time!
A blast from the past this week! With preparation for a few local gigs this week, my time has been limited and I did not get to make a new video. So here’s a rerun from almost exactly two years ago.
I remember making this one well. I was eight weeks pregnant and wondering if anyone could tell. !!! The answer to that is clearly “no”. (I’d do just about anything if I could get back to my eight-weeks-pregnant look again! )
All that aside – I remembered this video today while teaching a class the other version of this song “I’m A Little Fish”. Both versions are in the video – the classic and the summertime one.
I recall doing this song over and over again when I learned it at preschool. I simply adored it. I hope your kids do, too!
Enjoy this week’s “encore” and I’ll see you next week with another video!
I feel so lucky when I find a great, popular children’s song – that I’ve never heard before!
I’ve heard variations on Five Little Ducks, and perhaps I’ve even heard this one, but got it confused with the other because of the similar tune (and subject!). But either way I felt like I struck gold this week, because what a cute song! We get to do a whole lot of quacking, and get to say “wibble wobble wobble wobble” a few times. Does it get any better?
Enjoy the video and feel free to quack along.
This is another song that falls on the “Really? I didn’t do this one already?” list.
I learned it ages ago when I was a Gymboree teacher, and of all the activity songs we learned and used, it was always one of my favorites.
The rhythm and medley are catchy, but it’s the fun of going up, down, half-way up and even side-to-side that are so much fun. At Gymboree this song was party of the “lap ride” portion of the class (kids sit on their parents laps/knees and and get bounced around and moved according to the song). In today’s video, I’ve done it so that your kiddo (or you!) can have fun while sitting in a chair.
Enjoy the video and the upcoming holiday weekend! See you next time.
I’m so excited to share this video with you all!
Through all of these sing-alongs and birthday parties I not only meet your adorable, smart, fun and funny kids, but I meet you – their amazing parents! Such is the story of me meeting Jaclyn Carter of Love Jac Designs. While casually discussing the things she had in mind to create for her daughter’s “Miss Nina Party” I said – “Oh My God – can I hire to help me create cool party packages for me?!?” And Voila! The #MyMissNina party began it’s incarnation.
As you know, aside from sing-alongs and concerts, I entertain at birthday parties. From super casual, small sing-alongs in the park to huge, festive, concert-like birthday parties, I’ve done it all. And so together with Love Jac Designs, we’ve created some fun add-ons to my typical birthday party package to make the party a little extra “Miss-Nina-y.” And you can have these items at your birthday party whether you’re in NYC, or Canada, London or Japan or anywhere in between!
Pink Guitar Temporary Tattoos, Miss Nina stickers, Miss Nina coloring pages, Personalized Invites, Pink Guitar Thank You Notes, and even a Personalized Miss Nina Step & Repeat are some of the fun creations we have for you. You can see them all in this video.
These things are available as additions to your party now, and will be for sale separately, very soon, on my online store. But of course, if you can’t wait, just email me to get the information and get an order going! (Head on over to the contact page for my email address) .
And although this is kind of a promo video, I have to say Piper, who is now 15 months, LOVES it and has watched it repeatedly. So I think your kids are gonna love it too.
And, hey, if you’re thinking of booking a birthday party - head on over to the Book Miss Nina page for more info.
Enjoy, have a wonderful week and I”ll see you next time….or at a birthday party soon!
