Five Little Ladybugs

Five little ladybugs on our front door, (Hold up five fingers.)
One flew to Isaac, and that left four. (Hold up four fingers.)
Four little ladybugs, oh so wee,
One flew to Dad, and that left three. (Hold up three fingers.)
Three little ladybugs saying "howdy-do,"
One flew to Brian, and that left two. (Hold up two fingers.)
Two little ladybugs snoozing in the sun,
One flew to Sarah, and that left one. (Hold up one finger.)
One little ladybug alone on the door,
It flew to Mom, then there were no more.
(Bend down last finger.)
