If your happy and you know it (intro song)

Fireworks in the Sky Original Author Unknown (Tune: Row , Row, Row Your Boat)
Boom, crack, whistle, pop!
Fireworks in the sky.
See them lighting up the night,
On the Fourth of July.
Red, blue, gold, and green,
With fireworks we say,
Happy Birthday, America,
It's Independence Day!

On Independence Day
(Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Fireworks go snap, snap, snap!
Crack, crack, crack!
Zap, zap, zap!
Fireworks make me clap, clap, clap
On Independence Day!

Way up in the Sky (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)
Wave, wave, wave the flag,
Hold it very high.
Watch the colors gently wave,
Way up in the sky.

March, march, march around,
Hold the flag up high.
Wave, wave, wave the flag,
Way up in the sky.

You are my sunshine song with paper plate sunshines

Sunshines --to make theses use yellow paper plates- cut points out all the way around and make them look like a sun -- draw a face on with black marker and place on a tongue depressor size stick with strong tape.

If they need to get up and move around feel free to use the parachute with balls 
lift up parachute, 
go under from one side to the other before it comes down,
 walk in a circle holding handles, 
lay down on floor under the parachute to see if it touches belly
Place paper crayons colors  red , white, and blue or even yellow paper stars on the parachute to shake them up.
