Flannel: Five Little Sandcastles

5 little sandcastles

Five little sandcastles built by the shore,
Along came a wave and WHOOSH!
there were four.

Four little sandcastles built by you and me,
Along came a wave and WHOOSH!
there were three.

Three little sandcastles built by me and you,
Along came a wave and WHOOSH!
there were two.

Two little sandcastles built in the sun,
Along came a wave and WHOOSH!
there was one.

One little sandcastle built just for fun,
Along came a wave and WHOOSH!
there were none.

The fish in the sea go swish swish swish,

Swish swish swish, swish swish swish,

The fish in the sea go swish swish swish,

All day long.

Verses
The jellies in the sea go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle…
The sharks in the sea go chomp, chomp, chomp…
The crabs in the sea go pinch, pinch, pinch….
