Open Them, Shut Them


This is a short rhyme I use with babies and toddlers before we begin a story. It gives them some practice with their fine motor skills and gets them ready to focus on the next story.



Lyrics

Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Give a little clap
clap hands

Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Put them in your lap
place hands in lap



Creep them, creep them
creep hands up body

Right up to your chin
fingers on chin

Open up your little mouth
open mouth

But do not let them in
bring hands behind back



Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Give a little clap
clap hands

Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Open them, shut them
open and shut hands

Put them in your lap
place hands in lap
