Rhyme: This is big, big, big  Hold arms out to side
This is small small small Cup hands together
This is short short short Hold hands with palms facing each other
This is tall tall tall Reach one hand above head
This is fast fast fast Circle fists quickly
This is slow slow slow Circle fists slowly
This is yes yes yes Nod
This is no no no Shake head

Song: I can make my hands go clap, clap, clap
Clap, clap, clap
Clap, clap, clap
I can make my hands go clap, clap, clap
They’re a part of me.

I can make my feet go stomp, stomp, stomp, etc…
I can make my hand wave bye, bye, bye…

Rhyme: Roly Poly
Roly poly ever so slowly [slowly roll baby’s hands]
Roly poly faster faster faster faster! [roll hands faster]

Rhyme: The little clock goes tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock (swing baby side to side)
The big clock goes ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong (swing back front to back)
