Row Your Boat and a Noodle

Everyone knows the song Row Your Boat, especially preschoolers.  
You will need a noodle to help your kids enjoy this song.  You can fit 3 children behind a noodle.  They hold the noodle and will row out and in to the beat of the song.  At the end of the song, sing these words in an arpeggio going up..."The waves rolled high".  Then in an arpeggio going down sing, "The waves rolled low",  One more time, "The waves rolled high" "THEN the waves rolled us overboard"  "Splash!"  It's simple, yet the kids love it.
