Songs, Rhymes and Fingerplays

Hello Song
Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb
Everybody smile and wave,
Smile and wave,
Smile and wave.
Everybody smile and wave,
I’m so glad you’re here.
Repeat

Bees & Flowers
Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Buzz, buzz, busy bee
Zipping all around
Looking for a flower friend
Waiting to be found
(Keep “flower” finger behind back until time to come out, have bee land on flower)

Rain is Falling Down
Tune: Farmer in the Dell
The rain is falling down. Splash! (flutter fingers down baby’s arms, swipe down legs on “splash” OR for older kids – flutter fingers down in the air, clap on “splash”)
The rain is falling down. Splash!
Pitter patter, pitter pat, (flutter fingers on baby’s body OR tap thighs)
The rain is falling down. Splash!
The sun is peeking out. Peek! (play peek a boo OR act as the sun)
The sun is peeking out. Peek!
Peeking here and peeking there,
The sun is peeking out. Peek!

Bicycle
(Great for diaper changing times: rotate baby’s legs)
I have a little bicycle
I ride it to and fro
And when I see that big green light
I know it’s time to go
I have a little bicycle
I bought it at the shop
And when I see that big red light
I know it’s time to stop!

I Hear Thunder
Tune: Frere Jacques
I hear thunder, I hear thunder (pound hands gently on floor or lap)
Listen, don’t you? Listen, don’t you? (cup hand to ear)
Pitter, patter, raindrops; pitter, patter, raindrops (wiggle fingers in falling motion)
I’m wet through (shake body)
So are you! (tickle child)

This Is the Way We Tap Our Sticks (with rhythm tubes)
Tune: Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush

This is the way we tap our sticks,
Tap our sticks, tap our sticks.
This is the way we tap our sticks,
So early in the morning.

Tap them soft
Tap the floor
Tap our shoes
