Puppy's Doghouse fingerplay
This is puppy's doghouse. (hands form peak over head)
This is puppy's bed. (hands out in front, palms up)
This is puppy's pan of milk. (cup hands together like a bowl)
Where he can be fed. (make licking motions)
This is puppy's collar. (encircle neck with fingers)
His name is on it, too. (nod)
Take a stick and throw it! (throwing motion)
He'll bring it back to you. (rapidly pat leg with hand) Taken from Storytimes for Two-Year-Olds 3rd Ed. by Judy Nichols
My Little Dog (tune: Where Has My Little Dog Gone?
Oh Where oh where has my little dog gone? (look all around)
Oh where oh where can he be? (keep looking)
With his ears cut short (hands on ears)
And his tail cut long. (wave hand behind like a tail)
Oh where oh where can he be? (look all around)
Here oh here is my little lost dog! (clap hands)
He's here right behind me! (point over shoulder)
With his ears cut short %2(hands on ears)
And his tail cut long (wave hand behind like a tail)
He's here right behind me! (point over shoulder)
