Bedtime
Time for bed, time for bed
Fluff up the pillow, (make fluffing motions with hands)
Lay down your head. (palms together, hands to side of face)
Pull up the blanket, (pull imaginary blanket up to chin)
Tuck it in tight. (arms down tightly against sides)
Close your eyes (close eyes)
And sleep all night. (snore)
Here is a Baby
Here is a baby (index finger)
Ready for a nap;
Lay her down in her mother's lap. (place finger in palm)
Cover her up so she won't peek; (curl fingers around index finger)
Rock her till she's fast asleep. (rock)
