I loved this idea when it was introduced to me by a collegue many years ago. We sing the song My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean as a group and everytime a word that starts with the letter B (Bonnie, Bring, Back)  is sung we raise our arms.

My day centre is lucky enough to have a regular Music Activities visit. Andrew ( known as "The Music Man") performs "My Bonnie" and encourages the clients to do action along with their singing. Hands to chest = my, an hourglass figure traced in the air with both hands= bonnie, folded hands to ear=lies, pointing = over, ect. We start off slow and try to get up to normal speed. It's great fun, good exercise and always ends up with us laughing as we fail to keep up with Andrew! He also does breathing exercises and other "movement " songs, combined with a sing-a-long so theres something for everyone to enjoy.
