Healthy, Happy, Active, Fit! All 4 kids eat smart, don’t sit!
Need a soda from the fridge? (reach out like you’re opening the refrigerator door)
No thanks, I’ll skip! I’ll eat an orange instead!
Need a cookie from the jar? (reach down like you’re reaching into a cookie jar)
No thanks, I’ll skip! And pull a carrot from the patch!
Need a pie in the sky? (reach high like you’re stretching to the sky)
No thanks, I’ll skip! And pick an apple from the tree!
Need a ride to the park? (pretend you’re driving a car)
No thanks, I’ll skip! And go (start skipping around in a circle!)
Lou, lou, skip to my lou!
Lou, lou, watch me move!
Lou, lou feel my heart go “Whoo”!
Skip to my lou my darling!
