Songs & Fingerplays

Hush Little Baby

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's going to buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don't sing,
Mama's going to buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's going to buy you a looking glass.

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's going to buy you a billy goat.

And if that billy goat won't pull,
Mama's going to buy you a cart and bull.

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

Add Your own verses by Mammas gonna buy you a (make up anything),
and if that (item) don't (adjective)

Five Little Babies

Five little babies in the bed (hold up fingers & remove one each time)
And the little one said, "Roll over, roll over." (roll hands)
So they all rolled over and one fell out
There were 4 in the bed
And the little one said, "Roll over, roll over."

Continue until there is one baby left.

And the little one said, "Good Night!"

Have the kids participate in a relay where they have to crawl through an obstacle course. Great to help kids learn how babies move around.
