Arms and chins
Feet and tummies arms and chins

Baa Baa PINK (any colour) sheep 
Have You any SPOTS? 

Yes Sir Yes Sir (or child's name) 
LOTS & LOTS. 

One on my knee 
And one on my Tummy, 

One on my Nose 
And that's not funny 
(but is really is!!)

Baa Baa Pink Sheep,
Have you any spots?

Yes sir, yes sir
Lots and lots!

Some on my fingers,
and some on my toes!
Some on the end of my little pink nose!

Hints and Tips:

  • Instead of spots use a different pattern (stripes, wavy)
  • Use colour flashcards to help child identify colour of the sheep

Open Shut Them

Give a little clap

Lay them in your lap 

Creep them, creep them 
Creep them, creep them 
Right up to your chin 

Open wide your little mouth 
But do not let them in!

Shake them, shake them
Shake them, shake them
Shake them just like this

Roll them, roll them
Roll them, roll them,
Blow a little kiss!

High up in the sky, sky, sky.

Wave to me, I'll wave to you,
Let's all say "Bye, bye."
