Jump Into Your Spacesuit

This is a fun little rhyme for children. The actions have been hugely popular with ages 2-5. Its overall simplicity lends itself well to expansion and activities, and I often use it as a way to practice control with instruments.

  Voice only

Jump into your spacesuit—
Don't forget your hat—
Climb into the rocket on the launching mat.
Buckle up now, *click click*
Belts from head to toe,
Ready for the launch and HERE WE GO:
10.. 9.. 8.. 7.. 6.. 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1..


Jump on the word "jump"
Mime placing a hat on your head
Mime climbing
Mime fastening a seatbelt, click twice with your tongue
Touch your head, your toes
Arms up; tuck elbows in on "GO"
Slowly squat down... and... the right thing
