Fingerplay: Open Shut Them

Open, shut them, open, shut them,

Give a little clap, clap, clap.

Open, shut them, open, shut them,

Put them in your lap, lap, lap.

 

Creep them, creep them,

Creep them, creep them,

Right up to your chin, chin, chin.

Open up your little mouth,

But do not let them in.

Action Song- I’m a Little Teapot

I’m a little teapot

Short and stout

Here is my handle (one hand on hip)

Here is my spout (other arm out straight)

 

When I get all steamed up

Hear me shout

“Tip me over

and pour me out!” (lean over toward spout)

 

Additonal Verse:

I’m a clever teapot,

Yes it’s true

Here let me show you

What I can do

I can change my handle

And my spout (switch arm positions)

Just tip me over and pour me out! (lean over toward spout)
