9. Warm-down and give out magic sparkles ‘Warm-Down Rhyme’ by Lucy Milan Davis & Sarah Moss
We’ve had lots of fun in Danceland, (big stretch up with both hands in opposing directions) But it’s time to say farewell, (wave goodbye with right hand and then left hand)
So let’s take out our magic wands, “ping”, (mime taking out wand and casting spell)
And say our magic spell. (put imaginary wand back in lap)
I wiggle my fingers, I wiggle my toes, (actions as indicated)
I wiggle my shoulders, I wiggle my nose. (actions as indicated)
Say abracadabra, 1, 2, 3 (wave magic wand with right hand then count to three with left hand)
And we’re back in the real world (whisper) still as can be. (hands back in laps, sitting up straight and very still)
