Going on a Lion Hunt

          Children enjoy alternating hand-claps with thigh-slaps as they listen to their teacher lead this story.  Of course, they love making the appropriate sound effects and motions as they are called for.

 

Refrain:
Going on a lion hunt.
I'm not afraid.
I'm going to catch me
a BIG lion! 
(Spread arms to demonstrate the word "big" as you say the word.)
But look!
What's that ahead?
(Raise your head to your forehead, as though you were looking far away.)

Uh-oh.
There's mud ahead!
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Better go through it.
(Make sloshing sounds and move hands and feet as if wading through mud.)

Refrain

Uh-oh.
There's a lake ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Better swim through it.
(Make swimming motions.)

Refrain

Uh-oh.
There's a gate ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Better go through it.
(Gesture as if you open a gate, walk through, and close it.)

Refrain

Uh-oh.
There's tall grass ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it. We'd better crawl through it.
(If room permits, children can crawl around.)

Refrain

Uh-oh.
There's a cave ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Guess we'll have to walk into it.

It's dark in here.
I see two shining lights.
I feel something furry.
I feel a c-c-c-cold nose.
I feel s-s-s-sharp teeth.
It's a lion!!!
(Shiver and make terrified faces.)

Run out of the cave!
Crawl through the grass!
Open the gate!
Swim across the lake!
Wade through the mud!
Run into the house!
Close the door!
Run up the front stairs!
Crawl under your bed!
