4) Diaper Time!

It’s time to change your diaper, so come along with me
We’re gonna change your diaper, while singing happily
We’re gonna clean your tushie, we’re gonna clean it well
My favorite kind of tushie has no shmutz and has no smell
I’m glad you need a new one, it shows you are healthy!
You’ve used your food to grow when you go poop or pee.
Our bodies are amazing, So we thank God every day
And keep our bodies healthy when we eat and wash and play

5) Hole-y Body (Asher Yatsar)

Our ears hear, mouth makes sound
D G
Our hands clap, can spin around

Our nose can smell, Our eyes can see
I thank God for making you and me

Our shoulders shrug, elbows bend
Our fingers wave, help to make friends
Our neck can stretch when we nod
We love our body, thank you God

Our hips can sway, tummy can tickle
Our legs can stretch, toes can wiggle
Each day discover what our body can do
I thank God for making me and you

The body is great, with many parts
That work together ‘cuz the body is smart
Water, food and air go out and in
With the holes we use, then we start again

asher yatzar et ha’adam b’chochmah
uvara vo n’kavim n’kavim khalulim khalulim.
