    Default could anyone help me with 6 phrases?

    The phrases below are addressed to a group of young children in a song I'm recording. The rest of the song has already been translated and is a Baha'i scripture about truthfulness that the children are memorizing. I'm adding these action phrases to engage the children and make the song more fun.

    Spoken

    ---Stomp your feet

    ---Clap your hands

    ---Nod your head

    Sung

    ---Veracidad (or la veracidad if that sounds better) ??

    Spoken

    ---Touch your chin

    ---Now your nose

    ---Hands up high

    Sung

    ---Veracidad (or la veracidad if that sounds better) ??

    thank you...

    Just Veracidad is fine though I would need to hear the song to see how it actually sounds haha, anyways you want the phrases translated? Well
    -Pisa con los pies
    -Aplaude con las manos
    -Mueve la cabeza
    -Toca tu barbilla
    -Ahora tu nariz
    -Las manos en alto

    I did in singular person.

    More context would be helpful, but as it is...

    Spoken

    ---con los pies

    ---con las palmas

    ---con la cabeza

    Sung

    ---es la verdad

    Spoken

    ---con la papada

    ---ahora en la nariz

    ---arriba las manos

    Sung

    ---es la verdad

    Hola Lombardest
    No me resultan del todo naturales algunas de tus expresiones:
    -Pisa con los pies…En espanol, pisar es solamente con los pies.
    -Aplaude con las manos…No decimos aplaudir con las manos sino aplaudir solo o con las palmas.
    -Mueve la cabeza
    -Toca tu barbilla…En espanol no utilizamos adjetivos posesivos para mencionar las partes del cuerpo (solo en casos especiales).
    -Ahora tu nariz…Igual que el anterior.
    -Las manos en alto

    Espero que no reacciones de manera defensiva pues no es un ataque es solo una observacion para no promover que docentes extranjeros utilicen el espanol de manera rara.
    Cordial saludo,
    C.
