another finger play created at a workshop I did for the King County Library
staff in Seattle Washington. I gave staff the first line, and they developed
a finger play. I then put a melody to it. Children will want to sing this
several times in a row! Exaggerating the motions makes it especially fun!
A Little Bitty Bug
A little bitty bug
(indicate tiny with thumb and index finger)
Too small to hug
Was sittin’ on a rug, just a’sittin’ on a rug
(tap floor )
And then to show his might
( put dent
arms out at side with closed fists, as if showing muscles- exaggerate!)
He took a daring flight
( shoot one hand straight up in the air)
He landed on my nose
( spiral finger down to tip of nose)
And what do you suppose?
He flew down to my toes!
down to toes, singing and moving slowly )
