Ten Little Ponies
Ten Little Ponies

Ten Little Ponies in a meadow green,
(Hold up ten fingers)

Ten little ponies, friskiest ever seen,

They go for a gallop,
(gallop hands)

They go for a trot
(trot hands)

They come for a halt in the big feed lot.
(keep hands still)

Ten little ponies fat and well fed

Curl up together in a soft, straw bed.
(close up fingers in hand)

Craft
Horse Shoes - Cut a horse shoe shape out of heavy paper or cardstock. Wrap strips of aluminum foil around the horse shoe to make it look like it's made out of metal. If you make several, you can play a kid-safe game of horse shoes.
