Watermelon Applause - Everyone holds a huge slice of watermelon in their hands. They slurrrrp it into their mouths from one end of the slice to the other. (Move slice across face making slurping sound.) Then they spit out the seeds to the side (raspberries!).


Cantaloupe Cheer: Like the watermelon cheer, but proportionately smaller. Hold piece of cantaloupe in your hand. Move it across your mouth taking a "short bite" from end to end, turn your head, and spit out the seeds.


Grape Cheer: (Just as the Cantaloupe Cheer was a smaller version of the Watermelon Cheer, the Grape Cheer is a smaller version of the Cantaloupe Cheer!) Only need to use one hand!


After Dinner Applause - "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is!"


Ketchup Bottle Cheer - Pat bottom of bottle (left hand), then the third time the ketchup comes out all over "BLLLLGGGG".


Food Applause: Rub tummy and say "Yum, yum, yum!"
