Clap, Clap Clap your hands

God gave everyone hands,

Clapping, clapping, clapping, clapping, God gave everyone hands.

Wiggle, wiggle wiggle your nose, God gave everyone (or use kids name) noses, wiggle , wiggle, wiggle wiggle, God gave everyone noses.

All ages love this song!


My Hands Upon My Head I Place

On My Shoulders

On My Face

At My Waist and By My Side

Then Behind Me They Will Hide

Now I Raise Them Up So High

Make my Fingers Fly, Fly, Fly

Now I Clap Them 1-2-3

Then I Fold Them Quietly

***A Good Attention Getter!!


(Child’s Name) has ten happy little fingers
Ten smiling little toes
Two loving eyes
One little bitty nose
Two ears that hear when mommy says no.


Toe Knee Chest nut
Toe knee chest nut, nose I love you
Toe knee nose toe knee nose
Toe knee chest nut, nose I love you that’s what toe knee nose

(point to the body parts; toe, knee chest, nut is the head, I is eye and for love you hug yourself and point for you)


Ten Little Fingers I have ten little fingers and they all belong to me. I can make them do things, would you like to see? I can shut them up tight. I can open them wide. I can clap them together and make them all hide. I can put them up high. I can put them down low. I can fold them together and hold them just so!

(Do the actions that fit the words and end with hands folded in your lap.)


We did the Hokey Pokey while we studied the body…it really helped them to learn their left and right.

You put one arm in
You take one arm out
You put one arm in and shake it all about
Do the hokey pokey and turn body around
That’s what it’s all about!
