Fingerplays and Rhymes
Here are some simple fingerplays and rhymes you can try at home with your child. Using finger puppets, puppets, and stuffed animals makes them even more fun. Enjoy!
The theme this week for the fingerplays and rhymes is kittens.
Who am I?
Soft fur, paws, and a little pink nose,
Do you know who has all those?
Pretty whiskers and a long tail,
Could it be a little snail?Try again, take one more guess.
Did you say a kitten? Yes!
My Kitty Cat, Puff
I have a kitty cat names Puff,
She's round and soft as a ball of fluff.
(Bend down fingers of left hand and hold up thumb)
Each day she laps up all her milk,
And her fur is soft as silk.
(Stroke left hand with right hand)
When she's happy you will know,
For her tail swings to and fro.
(Wiggle little finger on left hand.)
Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty
Soft kitty, warm kitty
Little ball of fur. (Form fist with one hand)
Pretty kitty, sleepy kitty,Purr, purr, purr.
(Stroke fist with other hand)
I have a little kitten,
She's black and white and gray.
When I try to cuddle her,
She always wants to play.
(Pretend to cuddle kitten.)
So I drag a piece of yarn
Across the kitchen floor.
She thinks it is a little mouse,
And always asks for more.
(Pretend to drag yarn across floor)
