BODY PART SONGS & RHYMES

 

LET’S MEASURE
Let’s measure from our head
Right down to our toes.
Let’s measure our arms,
Let’s measure our nose.
Let’s measure our legs,
Our waist, and all.
Let’s measure to see
If we have grown tall.

PUT YOUR FINGER ON YOUR KNEE
Tune:  “If You’re Happy And You Know It”

Put your finger on your knee, on your knee.
Put your finger on your knee, on your knee.
Then turn yourself around,
Stamp your feet upon the ground,
And put your little finger on your knee.

Continue singing and pointing to additional body parts.

RUB-A-DUB SONG
Tune:  “Here We Go ‘Round The Mulberry Bush”

This is the way we scrub our arms, scrub our arms, scrub our arms.
This is the way we scrub our arms, when we take a bath.

This is the way we scrub our legs, scrub our legs, scrub our legs.
This is the way we scrub our legs, when we take a bath.

This is the way we scrub our stomachs, scrub our stomachs, scrub our stomachs,
This is the way we scrub our stomachs, when we take a bath.

Continue singing about scrubbing additional body parts.

I HAVE A LITTLE BODY
I have a little body (Point to self)
That belongs to me.
I have two ears to hear with (Point to ears)
And two eyes to see.  (Point to eyes)

I have a nose for smelling. (Point to nose)
I have a mouth to eat.  (Point to mouth)
I have two hands to wave
At everyone I meet!  (Wave Hands)

MY THUMBS ARE STARTING TO WIGGLE
Tune:  “The Bear Went Over The Mountain”

My thumbs are starting to wiggle.
My thumbs are starting to wiggle.
My thumbs are starting to wiggle,
Around and around and around.

My hands are starting to wiggle.
My hands are starting to wiggle.
My hands are starting to wiggle,
Around and around and around.

HERE ARE MY EARS
Here are my ears. (Child points to ears)
Here is my nose.  (Child points to nose)
Here are my hands.  (Child holds up hands)
Here are my toes.  (Child points to toes)

Here are my eyes. (Child points to eyes)
Both opened wide.  (Child opens eyes wide)
Here is my mouth.  (Child opens mouth)
With white teeth inside.  (Child smiles showing teeth)

I WIGGLE MY FINGERS
I wiggle my fingers.
I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my hands.
I wiggle my nose.
Now the wiggles are out of me.
And I’m as still as I can be!

HEAD AND SHOULDERS
Tune:  “Frere Jacques”

Head and shoulders, head and shoulders,
Knees and toes, knees and toes.
Head and shoulders, head and shoulders,
Knees and toes, knees and toes.

Eyes and ears, eyes and ears,
Mouth and nose, mouth and nose.
Eyes and ears, eyes and ears,
Mouth and nose, mouth and nose.
