Rhyme: Pizza, pickle, pumpernickel
My little baby deserves a tickle! (tickle baby)
One for her nose, and one for her toes
And one for her tummy where the hot dog goes!

Song: Let’s Tap our Feet Together (Tune: “The More We Get Together”)
Let’s tap our feet together, together, together,
Let’s tap our feet together, because it’s fun to do.
Let’s clap our hands….
Let’s touch our nose…
Let’s touch our ears…

Book: Caterpillar’s Wish by Mary Murphy

caterpillars wish

Song: Caterpillar Caterpillar (Tune: “Are You Sleeping?”)
Caterpillar caterpillar (Wiggle fingers of one hand)
In the tree, in the tree (Spread arms like branches)
First you wiggle this way (Wiggle hand left)
Then you wiggle that way (Wiggle hands right)
Look at me, look at me (Point to self)

Song: Ants go marching

Puppet/Song: Bumblebee, bumblebee (Tune: “Jingle Bells”)
Bumblebee, bumblebee
Landing on my nose,
Bumblebee, bumblebee,
Now he’s on my toes.
On my arms, on my legs, on my elbows,
Bumblebee, oh bumblebee,
He lands and then he goes.

Rhyme: Great A, little a
Bouncing B,
The cat’s in the cupboard,
But she can’t see me.
