I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.

Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
Or open them wide.
Put them all together,
Or make them all hide.
I can make them jump high,
I can make them jump low.
I can fold them quietly,
And hold them all just so!

I Bounce You Here

I bounce you, bounce you everywhere
I tickle you here, I tickle you there

I hug you here, I hug you there

Make the shapes with your hands – can use other shapes too (diamonds, triangles, rectangles)

Slowly Slowly
Slowly, slowly, very slowly (creep fingers up baby’s leg)
Creeps the little snail
Slowly, slowly, very slowly (arm)
Up the wooden rail
Quickly, quickly, very quickly (tickle all over)
Runs the little mouse
Quickly, quickly, very quickly (dance fingers over tummy)
All around the house

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!
