Hand Fun

These are some of our favorite sing-song rhymes that occupy our hands and work on fine motor skills:

Open, Shut Them: (hands follow the instructions in the rhyme)
Open, shut them; open, shut them.
Give a little clap!
Open, shut them; open, shut them.
Put them in you lap!
Creep them, creep them, slowly creep them
Right up to your cheek!
Cover up your little eyes 
And through your fingers peak!

This is the Church:
This is the church, (fold the hands "church", with fingers linked together pointing down and thumbs facing you)
This is the steeple, (point the pinkies "steeple" straight up)
Open the door, (open the thumb "doors" in front)
And here are the people! (turn hand upside down and wiggle the finger "people")

We do others, too, but I'm drawing a blank.  I'd love to hear what others do!
