I had a little turtle His name was Tiny Tim I put him in the bathtub To see if he could swim. He drank up all the water He ate up all the soap Now he's stuck in bed with a bubble in his throat. Bubble, bubble, bubble, Bubble, bubble, bubble, Bubble, bubble, bubble, Bubble, bubble, POP!!
KIDiddles offers the lyrics to hundreds of children's songs and lullabies, as well as free printable Song Sheets and Sheet Music.
Had a Little ChickieTune: Turkey in the StrawHad a little chickieAnd she wouldn't lay an egg; So I poured hot water Up and down her leg, Oh, that little chickie cried And that little chickie begged; Then that silly little chickie laid A hard-boiled egg! Rump-diddly-dah-dum, Dumb chick!
All around the forest ground There's flowers everywhere. There's pink, yellow, and purple too. Here's one for you.
Flowers Tall and Small
Flowers tall, (let tall fingers stand up) Flowers small, (let little finger and thumb stand up) Count them one by one, Blowing with the breezes In the springtime sun! 1,2,3,4,5 (touch each finger as you count)
Three Little Tulips
Sung to: "Six Little Ducks"
Three little tulips I once grew, A white one, a pink one, a red one too. One little tulip grew, grew, grew. It grew taller than the other two, The other two, the other two. It grew taller than the other two!
I'm a little Daisy
Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot"
I'm a little daisy Tall and slim (Stand on tiptoes) Here are my petals (Place hands on side of head & wiggle fingers) Here is my stem (Hold arms down at sides of legs) When the sun comes up (Make sun with arms) And the rain comes down (Flutter hands to floor like rain-end in crouching position) I grow, grow, grow- up from the ground! (slowly raise up bring hand over head)
First I was a raindrop, falling, falling. First I was a raindrop, drop, drop, drop.
Next I was a puddle, puddle, puddle. Next I was a puddle with my friends.
Then there came some children, children, children. Then there came some children, SPLASH! SPLASH! SPLASH!
sing the song in a quiet voice, fingers wiggling in the air for rain falling, flat palm towards the floor in a circular motion for a puddle, when the children come slap the floor as you loudly say splash splash splash.

finger plays A-Z I like:
Dogs in the Dirt
Ten little doggies went out one day (10 fingers up) To dig in the dirt and play, play, play. (Pretend to dig.) Five were spotted, and five were not, (Show one hand at a time.) and at dinner time they ate a lot! (Pretend to eat.)

Activities for preschool science and nature study to encourge your children to explore plants and animals and enjoy the outdoors.
Feed the birds that frequent your area and let your children begin to identify them. Set out bird feeders or a bird table. If necessary, get a nature guide and learn the names of them together. Learn about what foods they eat and then observe how the beaks of different birds are suited to their food types. Identify males and females of the species and observe their behaviour. Identify the nests of the birds. Learn about eggs and reproduction.
Horse Shoes - Cut a horse shoe shape out of heavy paper or cardstock. Wrap strips of aluminum foil around the horse shoe to make it look like it's made out of metal. If you make several, you can play a kid-safe game of horse shoes.
