Panda Pokey


Invite children to sing these words and perform the motions to the tune of "Do the Hokey Pokey".

You put your panda ears in (move head forward)
You put your panda ears out (move head backward)
You put your panda ears in (move head forward)
And you shake them all about (shake head)
You do the Panda Pokey
And you walk yourself around (walk a few steps)
That's what it's all about! (clap hands together)

Repeat verse substituting nose, paw (use arm), and tail.
