Is your Primary Program "dragon" (dragging)?
Here are some fun BREATHS that may help with the wiggles!!! Breathing is a very important part of singing. They are cub scout cheers modified for primary singing time.
(Dragon was hand drawn on a poster board and we cut the mouth out with a razor blade)
Water Sprinkler Breath: Put one hand behind head with elbow out and one arm outstretched in front of you. Move outstretched arm in small increments across you. While saying, "tchh tchh tchh" (like a sprinkler). And swing the outstretched arm back saying, "wheeeeeee".
Pretend like you're holding a big slice in both hands and slurp up from one end of the watermelon to the other. Then spit out the seeds, "puh puh puh".
Hands cupped to mouth howling, "Wooooo".
Hold nose back like pig and say, "Suuueee".
Ferris Wheel Breath:
Circle hand up like a Ferris Wheel and then down (in a circle). Saying, "Ooooooh" on the way up; and "Aaaaah", on the way down.
Pat tummy saying, "Yum yum yum".
Pretend like you have wings and say, "whooo whoooo".
Put arms straight out together like flippers and say, "ort ort ort".
Bicycle Pump Breath:
Pump arms saying, "shis shis shis".
Pretend to have sword in hand saying, "Swish swish swish".
Saying in a "witchy" voice, "hee hee hee".
Make a motion as if pulling a stick (on a boat gondolier style) and sing out loud, "O, Sole Mio".
Place open hands by ears to form antlers and call, "ooooo-aaaaa-ooooo".
Flutter lips with finger.
Hold onto handlebars, turn the gas handle back saying, "vvvrooooom vvvroooom".
Make fists out of both hands put them together and make sound of steam building (ssss). Then yell, "POP", as hands and arms extend over head.
Make claws out of hands and huff, "Haaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwww.... sizzle".
