    Reach for the ceiling, touch the floor.
    Stand up again, let's do some more!
    Touch your shoulders, then your knees;
    Now your elbows, like this you see.
    Reach for the ceiling, touch the floor.
    Stand up! Sit down! There is no more.

    Snowflake Dance
    Snowflakes, snowflakes all around. In the air and on the ground.
    Some are big and some are small. Roll them into a snowball.
    When the sun comes out to play, all the snowflakes melt away!
