Christmas Presents
See all the presents by the Christmas tree. (Hands in sweeping motion.)
Some for you (Point to children.)
And some for me. (Point to self.)
Long ones, (Hands spread wide apart.)
Tall ones, (Measure from the floor.)
Short ones, too. (Hands close together.)
And here is a round one
Wrapped in blue.(Make circle with arms)
Isn't it fun to look and see
All the presents by the Christmas tree? (Nod.)
Gingerbread Man

Stir a bowl of gingerbread
Smooth and spicy brown (stir as in bowl)

Roll it with a rolling pin
up and up and down (Pretend to roll)

With a cookie cutter,
make some little men.(pretend to cut out)

Put them in the oven
till half past ten! (place in oven)
