FINGER PLAY: Dancing Fingers

Activity Instructions:

Have children show you their thumb, pointer, and pinkie fingers. (We’ll skip Mr. Ring, and we aren’t going to teach you how to use Mr. Middle in music class. ;) )

Lyrics:

Hello Mr. Thumb, Hello Mr. Thumb
How are you today?
I am very fine, thank you Mr. Thumb
Let’s dance the day away

I am playing with my thumbs
Playing with my thumbs
I am playing with my thumbs
Playing with my thumbs

Hello Mrs. Pointer, Hello Mrs. Pointer
How are you today?
I am very fine, thank you Mrs. Pointer
Let’s dance the day away

I am playing with my pointers
Playing with my pointers
I am playing with my pointers
Playing with my pointers

Hello Baby Pinkie, Hello Baby Pinkie
How are you today?
I am very fine, thank you Baby Pinkie
Let’s dance the day away

I am playing with my pinkies
Playing with my pinkies
I am playing with my pinkies
Playing with my pinkies
