Song/Flannel: “10 Little Grasshoppers”

One little, two little, three little grasshoppers,
Four little, five little, six little grasshoppers,
Seven little, eight little, nine little grasshoppers,
Ten little grasshoppers in my yard.

Grasshoppers, grasshoppers, hopping all around me (slap thighs to rhythm)
Grasshoppers, grasshoppers, hopping all around me,
Grasshoppers, grasshoppers, hopping all around me,
Ten little grasshoppers in my yard.

Ten little, nine little, eight little grasshoppers,
Seven little, six little, five little grasshoppers,
Four little, three little, two little grasshoppers,
One little grasshopper in my yard.

Grasshopper, grasshopper, hopping all around me,
Grasshopper, grasshopper, hopping all around me,
Grasshopper, grasshopper, hopping all around me,
One little grasshopper in my yard.

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.
