Ten Little Fingers is a fun rhyme to teach a child. Follow the actions as the rhyme indicates.
I have ten little fingers (hold them up, palms forward)
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things.
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight (make fists)
Or open them up wide, (spread fingers)
I can put them together (palms and fingers together)
Or make them all hide. (knuckles together, hiding fingers)
I can make them jump high, (reach up high)
I can make them jump low, (way down low)
I can fold them quietly (resting in lap)
And hold them just so. (still resting)
