 Grandmother’s Glasses

 These are Grandmother’s glasses

And this is Grandmother’s hat

Grandmother claps her hands like this

And rests them in her lap

 

These are Grandfather’s glasses

And this is Grandfather’s hat

Grandfather folds his arms like this

And takes a little nap

 

 Fingers

 I can wiggle my fingers

I can wiggle my toes

I can wiggle my shoulders

And I can wiggle my nose

I can wiggle the wiggles all out of me

And I can be still, as still as can be

 

 Open Them Shut Them

 Open them, shut them,  open them, shut them

Give a little clap clap clap

Shut them, open them, shut them, open them

Lay them on your lap lap lap

Roll them, roll them, roll them, roll them

Roll them up like this

Falling falling falling falling

Blow a little kiss

 

 Row Row Row Your Boat

 Row row row your boat gently down the stream

Merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream

 

Row row row your boat gently down the stream

If you see a crocodile, don’t forget to scream

 

Row row row your boat gently to the shore

If you see a lion, don’t forget to roar

 

Row row row your boat gently down the stream

If you see a polar bear, don’t forget to shiver

 

Row row row your boat gently out to sea

If you see a dolphin, say ‘hello’ from me

 

Rock rock rock your boat gently to and fro

Merrily merrily merrily over the side you go…… SPLASH

 

 Little Peter Rabbit

 Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose

Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose

Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose

Floppy ears and curly whiskers

Floppy ears and curly whiskers

Floppy ears and curly whiskers

And he flipped it and he flapped it and the fly flew away

And he’s big and he’s scaly and green

And he’s hiding so he can’t be seen

 

Snap snap in the jungle there’s a crocodile

And he swishes his tail side to side

Snap snap in the jungle there’s a crocodile

And he opens his mouth very wide

And his tummy says it’s time for tea

Snap snap in the jungle there’s a crocodile

And he’s looking very closely at me

There’s a monkey in the jungle and he’s swinging
