Grass Finger Play

I See the Green Grass

I see the green grass (look down and point to the ground)
Under my feet (lift up one foot at a time)
It tickles my toes (wiggle toes)
And it smells so sweet (Sniff and smile)
It feels so soft (Stroke arm with finger tips)
Like a bed, you know (Hands under face as if sleeping)
I see the green grass (Look down and point to the ground)
Grow, grass grow! (Raise hands while wiggling fingers)

In the Tall, Tall Grass words by Denise Fleming

(to the tune of the Wheels On the Bus)

The caterpillars at lunch go crunch and munch,
Crunch and munch,
Crunch and munch.
The caterpillars at lunch go crunch and munch,
In the tall, tall grass.

The hummingbirds that sip go dart and dip.
The bees that hum go strum and drum.
The wings of the bird go crack and snap.
The ants that lug go pull and tug.
The snakes that glide go slip and slide.
The moles that scratch go ritch and ratch.
The beetles that hurry go skitter and scurry.
The tongues of the frogs go zip and zap.
The flop-eared bunnies go hip and hop.
The fireflies that glow go stop and go.
The bats that swoop go lunge and loop.
