Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Fingerplay: Bubble Bath (by Rob Reid)
Bubbly, bubbly, bubble bath (wiggle all ten fingers)
Fill to the top (raise fingers overhead)
Listen to the bubbly bubbles (cup hand to ear)
Pop! Pop! Pop! (clap three times)

Flannel Song: Sing a Song of Bubbles (by LeeAnn Collins)
(Tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It)
There’s a sailboat in the tub, in the tub (clap, clap)
There’s a sailboat in the tub, in the tub
There’s a sailboat in the tub,
Rub-a-dub-a-dub-a-dub
There’s a sailboat in the tub, in the tub
Duckie . . . mermaid . . . shark

Movement Rhyme: After a Bath (by Aileen Fisher)
After my bath,
I try, try, try
To wipe myself
‘Till I’m dry, dry, dry
Hands to wipe
And fingers and toes
And two wet legs
And a shiny nose
Just think how much
Less time I’d take
If I were a dog
And could shake, shake, shake

Flannel story: Elephants in the Bathtub
One elephant in the bathtub
Going for a swim
Knock, knock (clap twice)
Splash, splash (slap knees twice)
Come on in! (motion with both hands to come in)
Two elephants in the bathtub . . .

Five elephants in the bathtub
Going for a swim
Knock, knock
Splash, splash
It all fell in!

Song: This is the Way We Wash Our Hair
This is the way we wash our hair, wash our hair, wash our hair
This is the way we wash our hair, so early in the morning
This is the way we . . .
Wash our arms
Scrub our backs
Wash our knees
Scrub our feet
Don’t forget behind your ears
