Rhyme: Garden snail
Slowly, slowly, very slowly, creeps the garden snail. (Move hands down legs)
Slowly, slowly, very slowly, up the wooden rail. (Move hands up legs)
Quickly, quickly, very quickly, runs the little mouse, (Down legs)
Quickly, quickly, very quickly, in his little house. Squeak! (Up legs and body, make ears)

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 belly where the hot dog goes!

Rhyme: That’s Me Complete

I have ten little fingers and ten little toes (wiggle fingers and toes)
Two little arms and one little nose (wave arms, touch nose)
One little mouth and two little ears (touch mouth and ears)
Two little eyes for smiles and tears (touch your eyes)
One little head and two little feet (touch head, wiggle feet)
One little chin, that’s ME complete! (touch chin and pat chest)

Song: Here we go up, up, up (Tune: “Here we go looby loo”)
Here we go up, up, up (lift baby)
Here we go down, down, down,
Here we go up, up, up
Here we go down, down, down.
