Finger Plays for Winter Days

IMG_0350Little Boy/Girl Is Going to Bed

Author unknown – rhyming poem adapted by Liz Buchanan.  Make your pointer finger play the part of the child and do the motions for the rhyme with the other hand. Act out a little boy and a little girl.

Little boy is going to bed

On his pillow rests his head

Wrap the covers ‘round him tight

Now he’ll sleep all through the night.

 

Morning comes and up he goes

Washes up, puts on his clothes

A plate of pancakes he will eat,

Then he brushes all his teeth

Goes along his merry way

All day long, he’ll play and play!

 

Four Little Icicles

By Liz Buchanan. Count out four fingers then point them down. On the crash, clap your hands and say the word extra loud!

Four little icicles, hanging around

Four little icicles, pointing down

If one comes loose & goes CRASH to the ground

Then there’ll be three little icicles hanging around

 

Three little icicles, hanging from the roof

I hope another one doesn’t fall off!

But if one comes loose, and goes CRASH to the ground

Then there’ll be two little icicles, hanging around

 

Two little icicles, shining bright and clear

Two little icicles, dripping like a tear

But if one comes loose, and goes CRASH to the ground

Then there’ll be one little icicle, hanging around

 

One little icicle, all alone

One little icicle, shining in the sun

But if that one comes loose, and goes CRASH to the ground

Then there are no more icicles hanging around.

 

I hope spring comes soon!
