Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes = #atozchallenge

So, here we are at the end of the first full week of the 2016 A to Z Challenge (the 8th day).

Weekends are supposed to be fun, so I thought I'd pick a fun song for today, and it's also simple enough to get the A to Z 'Next Gen' involved!  So, without further ado, the song that I will be changing today is "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"


(all verses use the same basic tune)

Shrug your shoulders, blink your eyes,
Shrug your shoulders, blink your eyes,
(blink your ey-ey-ey-eyes)
Stand up, stretch your arms out wide
Shrug your shoulders, blink your eyes!

Turn your head to your left,
Turn your head to your right,
(to your ri-i-i-ight)
Squeeze those glutei real tight
Turn your head to the left and right!

Stand with your feet shoulder-wide, shoulder-wide
And bend your body to the side
(to the si-i-i-ide)
Bend it to the other side,
Stand with your feet shoulder-wide, shoulder-wide

Give yourself a pat on the back,
Give yourself a pat on the back,
(on the ba-a-a-ack)
Sit back down, and you will see,
Finishing that blog post is quite E-Z!


  1. A much needed workout!
    It seems like the challenge is starting to take its toll.
    Comments have already slowed down.
    Thank goodness for tomorrow when we have a day off...

    1. I hear you, Michelle. I did so many comments the first week last year that I kind of burned out. Trying to pace myself this time around. Rock on. :O)

  2. What a cute workout. I remember singing this song with my kids when they were little. I think it was from Blues Clues. Just dropped by from the challenge to say hello.

    1. Thanks, Melissa! I appreciate your visit. :O) They sang it in my children's grade school programs back in the day.

  3. And quite right to have some fun for the weekend. I should have learned this song before I did a reading at a library for pre-school children. Thanks for sharing LuAnn!

  4. My niece is going to love this song so much! I love it even more because it's so inclusive... Thank you for sharing it LuAnn.
