Fingerplay: The Owl
There’s a wide-eyed owl (thumbs and forefingers around eyes)
With a pointed nose, (thumbs and forefingers to make a point)
He has pointed ears (clenched hands, forefingers up for ears)
And claws for toes. (make hands into claws)
He sits in a tree and looks at you; (fingers circles around eyes)
Then flaps his wings and says, (hands to chest and flap elbows)
“whoo, whoo ” (hands cup mouth to hoot)
