Recite first verse in a high pitched voice:

And this is the way she folds her hands (Clasp hands together)

And lays them in her lap (Place hands in lap).


Recite second verse in a deep voice:

These are Grandpa’s glasses (Make bigger glasses shapes over eyes with fingers)

And this is the way he folds his arms (Cross arms)

And takes a little nap (Place head on arms as if sleeping).

This is a nest for Mr. Bluebird (cup hands together)

This is a hive for Mrs. Bee (make a fist)

This is a hole for bunny rabbit (make a circle with thumb and forefinger)

And this is a house for me (place fingertips together to form a roof peak over head).
