“The Leprechaun Clown” Saint Patrick’s day Dance; a music therapy idea
Closely based on the Elf Clown by Susan Olson Higgins. Stand in a circle Hold hands tight. Begin to walk to the right. (Pause.) Now you leprechauns, spin around. Slap your knees and tough the ground. Jump up tall and tap your toe. Tap it fast (pause) and tap it slow (pause.) Wiggle your fingers and reach for the sky. Clap your hands way up high. All you Leprechauns, sit right down. And go to sleep you leprechaun clown! Please send in any activities or musical processes that you use with children, adolescents or adults of all ages and abilities. These could be activities for use for kids, adolescents or adults that have autism, adhd, add, down’s / down syndrome, speech language delays, oral-motor issues, physical disabilities, mental health issues, conduct disorder, cerebral palsy and other issues that we human have to contend with. I’m also interested in any activities for people dealing with health issues, dementia, Alzheimer’s, chemical dependency, other addictions, grief, cancer, pain management and any other life issue. I have just installed a “spam” locator which means that I’ll actually get the mail as mail. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put activity in the subject line. Give yourself (or the author/composer) all the credit you want or remain anonymous. Thank you!! – Margie La Bella at music therapy tunes
