Two Little Puppets

You can use your imagination and pretend you have puppets on your hands. Or you can make a puppet using a paper bag (see Arts & Crafts pages).

Two little puppets,
One on each hand.
Isn’t she pretty?
Isn’t he grand?
Her name is Bella
His name is Beau.
Hear her say “Good Morning.”
Hear him say “Hello.”

Today’s color is plum. Make up hand motions for these Mother Goose rhymes!

Little Jack Horner

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner
Eating his Christmas pie
He put in this thumb
And pulled out a plum
And said “what a good boy am I!”

To Market To Market

To market to market
To buy a plum bun
Home again, home again
Market is done
