Hints and Tips: 

  • Learn the actions of the song

When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed
Up jumped the scarecrow
And this is what he said

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that

When all the hens were roosting
And the moon behind the cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow
And shouted very loud

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that

Five little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close her eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Four little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close his eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Three little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.

Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Two little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,

Reference:
Nursery Rhyme Finger Play - Five Little Caterpillars by Alina Celeste, YouTube

I have ten little fingers, 
And they all belong to me. 
I can make them do things,
Do you want to see? 

I can close them uptight,
I can open them wide.
I can put them together
I can make them hide. 

I can make them fly high, 
I can make them go low. 
I can fold them like this and hold them just so.

Hints and Tips:

  • Do the actions for each line.
