Have children form a circle. Sing one verse of “The Farmer
in the Dell
.” Then tell kids they’re going to sing a song
using that tune.

Have children skip in a circle and sing: “We are making stew. We
are making stew. Hi ho the derry oh. We are making stew.”

Add vegetables to the stew and each time make a vegetable “sign”
as kids march around the circle and sing. Add the first vegetable
and have kids make a circle in front of their body with their arms,
march and sing: “Cabbage in the stew. Cabbage in the stew. Hi ho
the derry oh. We are making stew.”

Add the following vegetables and signs:
Potatoes: Clasp hands in back of body, bend back
and shuffle feet.

Kids love our Sunday School resources!

Carrots: Keep arms straight by sides and walk
stiff-legged.

Celery: Raise arms high in the air, keep hands
together, wiggle fingers and tiptoe.

Onions: Rub eyes and gallop.

Tomatoes: Gently pinch cheeks and slide
sideways.

Chicken: Place fingers under armpits, flap elbow
“wings” and jump.

After all the “ingredients” are in the stew, have kids hold hands
while dancing around the circle and sing: “And now our stew is
done. And now our stew is done. Hi ho the derry oh. (Stop) GULP!
GULP! (Shout the last line.) And now the stew is gone!”
