Little Leaves

4 little leaves, 5 little leaves
Blow them all away (blow)

Tick Tock
Tick tock, tick tock, I’m a little cuckoo clock.
Tick tock, tick tock, now it’s one o’clock.
Cuckoo! (Lift baby into the air)
Continue with two, three, four and five o’clock. (For each o’clock add a cuckoo at the end)

Five Little Babies
One little baby rocking in a tree (pretend to rock baby)
Two little babies splashing in the sea. (make splash sound with hands)
Three little babies crawling on the floor (make 3 fingers crawl on arm)
Four little babies banging on the door. (clap hands)
Five little babies playing hide and seek (cover eyes)
Keep your eyes closed tight
Till I say PEEK!

Choo Choo
(Baby faces parent)
Here comes our choo-choo train,
Chuggin’ down the track
Now it’s going forward
Now it’s going back
Now our bell is ringing
Now our whistle blows
What a lot of noise it makes
Everywhere it goes!

Ride Baby Ride
Ride baby ride, ch ch ch ch ch ch
Ride that horsie, ride, ch ch ch ch ch ch
Ride baby ride, ch ch ch ch ch ch
Ride that horsie, ride, ch ch ch ch ch ch
Sing it in a whisper
Whoa! (lean back or spill to side or lift up, or fall through legs)
