Fingerplay: Open Shut Them x2
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 wide your smiling mouth
But do not let them in!

I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee
Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee
Ouch! It stung me!

I’m squishing up my baby bumblebee
Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
I’m squishing up my baby bumblebee
Yuck! It’s messy!

I’m wiping off my baby bumblebee
Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
I’m wiping off my baby bumblebee
Now my mommy won’t be mad at me!
