My Favorite games

One of my favorite things to do with Liv and now Eve is to sit down and do some fingerplays. They are a great distraction when Liv is upset, keep her entertained during down time or while we are out some where. They are also a great little activity when we are stuck inside during the winter.
Round and round the garden like a teddy bear (walk fingers around babies belly) One step, two step tickle you under there ( take 1 step with fingers, 2 steps and tickle under chin) 5 Little Ducks 5 little ducks went out to play (hold up 5 fingers) Over the hills ( move arm in a wave hill motion) and far away (put hand above eyes to look out) Mother duck cried "Quack quack, quack" (Clap) But only 4 little ducks came back repeat all with 4, 3, 2, 1 No little ducks went out to play (say with sad tone and hold hand up to make a zero) over the hills and far away But mother duck had hope and prayed so still cried "Quack quack quack!" And all 5 ducks came running back! (say very excited and tickle child with 5 fingers quickly running back) Beehive Here is the bee hive (make a fist) here are the bees ( point to fist) Hidden away where no body sees Here they are coming out of the hive 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (open fingers one by one) They're alive..bzzz (tickle withthe bzzz) Alligator Alligator, alligator (take arms one on top of each other open at end with hands long and green (open and close extended arms that are together) Alligator, alligator ( repeat above) Teeth so mean ( hold finger tips together, curved open and close them) Alligator, alligator what's for lunch (open and close alligator arms) Liv(you child's name) is, munch, munch, munch (munch child with arms)
