I have ten fingers,
(hold up both hands, fingers spread wide)
They all belong to me,
(point to self)
I can make them do things,
(hold up hands, wiggling fingers)
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight,
I can open them wide,
(open hands wide)
I can put them together,
(place palms of hands together)
I can make them hide.
(place hands behind your back)
I can make them jump high,
(raise hands over head)
I can make them jump low,
(touch hands to the floor)
I can fold them up quietly,
(fold hands in lap or in front)
And hold them just so!

Children love to play as they learn! Whether that's clapping to the rhythym of the verse, acting out the characters, playing games or creating great artwork!
We would love to hear about games, arts and crafts, fingerplays, anything that you do with your special little one to make nursery rhymes a fun interactive learning activity.
We know our mom's and grandma's have great ways to entertain while teaching their children and grandchildren.
Please share with us those fun learning experiences.
