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!

Movement/Song: Zoom Zoom Zoom x2
Zoom zoom zoom
We’re going to the moon
Zoom zoom zoom
We’re going to the moon

In 5…4…3…2…1…
Blast off!

Nursery Rhyme: Father and Mother and Uncle John x2
Father and Mother and Uncle John
Went to the market one by one
And Father fell off…
And Mother fell off…
But Uncle John went on and on and on…
