Open Shut Them
(spoken chant/fingerplay)

Open shut them, open shut them
Give your hands a clap!
Open shut them, open shut them
Lay them in your lap!

Creeping, creeping, creeping, creeping
Right up to your chin
Now open up your little mouth
But do not let them in!

Crawling, crawling, crawling, crawling
To your shoulders fly
Then like little birdies
Let them flutter to the sky

Falling, falling, falling, falling
Almost to the ground
Then quickly pick them up again
And turn them round and round

Faster, faster, faster, faster
