You are the lion in your city -
a big impressive yellow kitty.
(there is a picture of a kitty, which could change colours, e.g. from yellow to orange to purple by an integrated paper slider, colours should be chosen to fit to color blindness as well).
MIAU! MIAU! (caregiver and kid repeat together)
When you walk in the morning down the street
You spin around and lift your feet!
JUMP! JUMP! (caregiver and kid jump together and scream "jump")
Your smile gets big when you reach the kindergarten
and all the tigers dance and greet :
HELLO! HELLO! (caregiver and kid say hello to each other)
You greet back with the special big kitty sign:
(Caregiver and kid begin touching the listed parts of the face and repeat 2 times)
You touch your face - your cheeks, your nose
and fluffy ears and at the end - your toes.
REPEAT! (Caregiver and kid scream say the word together; repeat again)
You swing your tail and shake your bell
RING! RING! (Repeat again)
and say (both caregiver and kid together):
I feel so well! There is apple pie in the air I can smell!
Big city lions love any kind of apple pie,
so you shouldn't struggle and should not be shy.
Just, there has to be an order you should show:
Go ahead and just try to draw:
The size of the piece, signed by your fluffy little paw.
(Caregiver helps the kid drawing a piece of apple pie and stamping the drawing with its finger, using eg some watercolours).
As a city lion, you have now pie you want to share.
You visit all of your friends, so to be good and fair :
the hairdresser, the baker, the crane operator,
the doctor and the contract administrator.
(Caregiver and kid sing together)
"We can sing all day together,
We can dance and jump forever (caregiver and kid jumping)".
The day has good begun.
The city lion had lots of fun!
